How to Secure Web Browsing
The web browser is a complex piece of software. It can be used to browse websites as well as videos, images, and forms. Originally designed to show text documents, it can now handle all the various media formats that are accessible on the Internet. This makes it more challenging for security professionals to secure the internet, as it is brimming with “weak points” that attackers can take advantage of.
It is crucial to ensure that your security settings are set at the highest possible level whether you are using the default software preloaded on your computer or another browser you’ve downloaded. This will decrease the chances of malware being able to sneak over your security and installing into your system. It’s also a good idea to use the browser using a restricted account that doesn’t have administrator rights. Even if malware manages bypass the security settings of your browser, it will not be able to affect your system.
