Enabling Browser Privacy for Enhanced Cyber Security

For those of us worried about our web browsing being tracked and malicious scripts being executed on our browsers there are several add-ons to browsers that can help make you more secure and keep your activities private.

  • Adblock Plus is an add-on that blocks adverts and popups. It can also stop malvertising infections. Not only that, but it can block advertising and social media trackers.
  • Blur has the function to be a password manager and generator. It again helps block trackers and can encrypt data such as passwords.
  • Disconnect is another form of tracker blocker. An added advantage of blocking these trackers is websites load faster and consume less bandwidth.
  • DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials is a tool that as opposed to Google, disables search history and blocks hidden third-party trackers. It also tries to ensure you use HTTPS over an HTTP site. It also rates many site privacy policies from A-F.
  • Ghostery is another ad blocker that does its best to stop your activities being tracked.
  • HTTPS Everywhere rewrites all your HTTP requests to websites as HTTPS instead, to ensure you are using encrypted communication.
  • NoScript allows JavaScript, Flash and other executable content to run only from trusted domains you have chosen. This makes many attacks such as Cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery and clickjacking much harder to execute.
  • Privacy Badger is another privacy tool that tries to stop your activities being tracked.
