Privacy and Security on the internet is important. The consequences for ignoring this important measure could cause significant compromises especially to your precious identity or even financially. It is great that the majority of developers are focused in this direction by the creation of diverse tools, plugins and scripts to enable us all “live” securely and privately online. Browsers are one of the major headaches in this vulnerability, in that, the organizations behind them are committed to economic gains (even Mozilla) and thus permit frivolous internet tracking, cookie storage and other such “BIG DATA” practices. So, how does one enjoy the benefits of the internet without all the “AD OBSESSED” corporate projects? The first part is to get a rock-solid browser that is invested in the safety, privacy and security of the ordinary web user.
For your desktop/laptop/notebook, use Whitehat Aviator and For your iOS device, use the Red Browser.
My two cents! Stay Professional!
