First have a look at your browserโ€™s Privacy Notice before you deep-dive to adjusting your privacy settings. Make sure that you’re also using the latest version that your operating system supports, and that all the latest updates have been installed.
๐Ÿ’ช ๐˜‰๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ค๐˜ฌ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ข ‘๐˜บ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ โ€“ Save yourself from accidentally clicking on ads through ad-blockers! Aside from keeping you away from ads that may be too intrusive, they also help make websites load much faster.

HTTPS encrypts your connection, and that means your internet traffic is protected from being spied on, and your data from being stolen.
๐Ÿ’ช ๐˜๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ด๐˜ข ๐˜ด๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ด โ€“ Websites use cookies to store information about you. While this is generally necessary, it also helps track your browsing activities. Cookie management is important, and this includes a regular clearing of cache and cookies.

Closing websites or applications donโ€™t always mean that youโ€™ve logged out of your account; so โ€“ and this is especially important when using shared devices โ€“ make sure to sign out before you close.

These undergo constant improvements, so they are kept up to speed to the constant threats to your data privacy. Do your part by making sure that you are using the latest version of your software.
