Firefox is the only popular web browser that provides as much user privacy as possible. Similar to other browsers, you can use Firefox plugins to configure your browser to suit your personal privacy needs with less privacy or security issues.
Mozilla Firefox is an open source browser and there is no business behind it that wants to make money by monitoring user details and their actions on the internet. And also the researchers regularly test the web browser. This makes them safer.
Here, with the aid of just a few simple steps, we’re listing a few ways how users can make Firefox more private and secure.
Private Browsing mode can be used to restrict other websites from accessing your profile, site preferences or logins. Private Browsing also prevents cookies, stopping fraudsters and snoops from monitoring your browsing activity.
Through clicking the menu icon in the top right corner and selecting ‘New Private Window’ or using the ‘Ctrl+Shift+P’ buttons, you can open a private window.
Do Not Track:
You can enable the ‘Do not track’ feature that lets you tell every website you visit, its advertisers and content providers that you don’t want to track your browsing behavior.
- Open Firefox browser >> Click the menu button on the right corner and select ‘Options’.
- Select the ‘Privacy & Security panel’.
- Choose the option ‘Always’ under ‘Send websites a “Do Not Track” signal that you don’t want to be tracked.’
You can close the tab as the changes will be automatically saved. The Do Not Track feature is turned off by default, except in Private Windows.
Never Remember History Option:
Under the ‘Privacy & Security panel’, you can choose ‘Never Remember History’ so that the browser history is not saved. The user might be prompted to restart the browser once you change the settings to “Never Remember History.”
