When we all know that surveillance business has got free hand for long time but things are changing now. Not only Govts (i.e European union, USA, Germany) as an individual we are more cautious about our privacy. Privacy regulations like GDPR has made big impact. Big giants have no option but to regulate themselves or pay huge fine. We all know that Google & facebook have paid huge fine recently. We should also acknowledge facebook scandals contribution in whole privacy movement.
In a very recent move, Firefox has announced few important & impressive security features and some of them listed here:
Enhanced tracking protection
Firefox will be made available to new users with enhanced tracking protection enabled by default. Those already using Firefox will see the feature rolled out automatically in the coming months. Mozilla says the new feature will stop the “thousands of companies known for tracking” from accessing users’ personal data.
Password protection & inform user about data breaches
Another feature available on all browsers is a central dashboard called Firefox Monitor, originally announced in 2018 as a partnership with Troy Hunt’s Have I Been Pwned website. This is especially impressive because it allows users to search whether their details have been exposed in any known breaches, so they can change their passwords when needed.
For those who cares about security & privacy and don’t want websites to track everything. We could give a try on firefox. Below snapshot shows privacy options you have in Firefox.
