Browser privacy settings

If you run Chrome or Firefox or any other of the popular browsers you can do a few things to the settings in order to keep your data a little more private.

I’m talking more specifically about Google Chrome right now, but the same concept applies to all.

Here’s some settings to look for:

  • Turn off sync and services
  • Turn off offer to save passwords
  • Turn off payment methods
  • Turn off Addresses and more
  • Turn off allow Chrome Sign in
  • Turn ON Do Not Track
  • Turn off Allow sites to check for payment methods
  • Turn off Preload Pages
  • Site Settings – Notifications – Do not allow any sites to use notifications or prompt for them

These are just a few of the settings you can use to your advantage with any browser. Just make sure you check all your settings before using a specific web browser.
