Optimise your browser for better security

Searching on the internet can be risky business these days, with malware, spyware, and browser-based trackers all trying to invade your privacy and security. 

Add to that all the dangerous links that get sent by email and you’ll have real reasons to be afraid. 

But there are many ways you can protect yourself from malicious attacks.

Apart from being vigilant and watching what you click, you can also install plugins for your browser to block malicious agents in case something slips by.

Sysadmin365 can help you to set everything up and make your browser more secure. Contact us now.

Malwarebytes Browser Guard

Malwarebytes Browser Guard not only blocks some advertisements and trackers, it also stops in-browser cryptojackers (unwanted cryptocurrency miners), and it also uses an extended version of the Malwarebytes Premium blocklist that will stop malicious sites from loading—including sites that are involved in tech support scams.

As a bonus, blocking unwanted content can speed up your browsing up to four times.

Netcraft Extension

Netcraft scans websites and provides warnings about potential phishing threats.

Anytime you open a suspicious website, the extension will show you a warning sign in the browser toolbar. This makes it easier to protect your identity, data, and devices from cybercriminals.

The Disconnect extension helps to protect you from data tracking, malware installation, and mal-advertising.

It protects your privacy by blocking social media websites like Facebook and Twitter from accessing your browsing data even when you’re offline.

Hackers steal cookie data to access personal information without knowing passwords. If you want to browse the web safely and securely, you should install Disconnect on your computer right away!

HTTPS Everywhere

Encrypt the Web! Automatically use HTTPS security on many sites.

Most websites have updated their security to use HTTPS instead of HTTP, and Chrome will punish those that have not. Still, many have yet to make the switch, so the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Tor Project created HTTPS Everywhere to automatically change HTTP to HTTPS at unsecure websites to protect and secure your information.

Note that many new versions of browsers now support this function natively, so you can configure that without installing this plugin. Here’s how.

Ghostery is the most powerful privacy extension. It blocks ads, stop trackers and speed up websites.

Ghostery allows you to view and block trackers on websites you browse to control who collects your data. Enhanced Anti Tracking also anonymizes your data to further protect your privacy.

Note that Ghostery can block so much that certain websites may appear broken. Ghostery is only recommended for advanced users who know how to adjust Ghostery to keep websites working.
