How to Secure Web Browsing

The web browser is an intricate piece of software. It can be used to browse web pages images, videos, and forms. Originally designed to display documents in text, it now handles all kinds of media available on the Internet. This makes it difficult for security teams because it has a number of «weak areas» that attackers could exploit.

If you’re using the default program that is installed on your computer or an alternative browser that you’ve downloaded, it is crucial to ensure that the security settings are at the highest level possible. This will reduce the risk of malware getting past and installing into your system. It’s also recommended to use the internet browser in a user account with a limited user that doesn’t have administrator rights. So, even when malware manages to get past the security settings of your browser, it won’t be able to alter your system as easily.

It’s also a good idea to inform your users on safe browsing practices and habits. This could mean teaching users to use the most secure option on their web browsers including disabling auto-complete and regularly clearing saved passwords. It is also important to remind them of the importance of websites clearly stating how their data will be collected and used. This information is usually found in the website’s privacy policy or the user agreement. Browser security platforms remove blind spots by checking and analysing web session for threats and risks. These solutions are device agnostic, securing managed and unmanaged devices, including BYOD and unmanaged third party devices.
