Safeguarded Web Surfing

The Internet could be a dangerous place for unwary users. Insecure web browser settings can lead to malware being mounted on a computer with out a user’s knowledge, attackers coping with the machine and stealing information, or using the computer system as a bot to infiltration others.

Secure web surfing depends on a well-configured browser. UCSC’s IT Secureness Team suggests using a contemporary browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Safari) with the right configuration in order to protect the privacy and data. You need to consider the application of add-ons or extensions that could provide varying degrees of additional functionality into a browser. It’s also a good idea to maintain the browser and all add-ons/extensions up-to-date. A 64-bit version of any browser can be more robust against viruses attacks as it provides even more inherent protection via some thing called solve space layout randomization (ASLR).

It is recommended that a customer only works with a single web browser, and never “reserve” a browser for any particular online product such as Googlemail or Facebook. The use of a sole browser makes for better security by just allowing one set of credentials to get used on that, and reduces the potential for a malicious website to use a weeknesses in an past program. It’s also a good idea intended for users to allow password-protection features on pretty much all programs, and use solid passwords that comply with UCSC’s Password Criteria when necessary. Users should likewise make sure they are certainly not storing any kind of sensitive information in their browser, like mastercard numbers, or using auto-complete to log into sites that need a account information.
