Modern browsers make browsing simpler and improve web experience – remembering passwords, auto filling forms, saving settings and preferences. This information is stored in the background, and without users realising, can offer advertisers, spammers and hackers a wealth of personal and activity information to enable them to steal identities and commit fraud. Consider changing browser settings for the following items to improve security:
- private browsing
- delete browsing history on exit.
