Is there a way to maintain privacy online, and defeat tracking without resorting to extreme measures? We have written articles recently about the most private browsers, but using them requires changing habits and abandoning web browsers that you are already familiar with.
I came across this graphic on Pinterest, and thought it was worth sharing. It shows some pretty easy ways to limit tracking by websites you visit and improve your level of privacy while online.
While you are in the browser settings, look around for other security and privacy settings you might want to add. Also, if you have a user account with your browser, log in to your account and check the security settings there as well.
The will be some websites you need to access, such as banking and shopping sites, that may not work with these types of privacy setting. You usually can create an exception on a site by site basis, or allow an exception for the current session only.Share
