Whenever we surf the Internet our safety is at risk. The network represents, in fact, a constant problem for the privacy, for our bank accounts and also for business information. For this reason if we use the Google browser, Chrome, we must take some precautions.
Google Chorme, Microsoft Edge or Mozilla Firefox they are all trustworthy browsers, trying to protect users. But the real difference is the user himself making it. The more careful we are, the less likely we are to end up in the hands of a cyber criminal. To keep your data safe, just change some browser settings. For example, if we use Google Chrome, the first setting to change immediately is the synchronization of passwords and history. In this way, it will be more difficult for the bad guys to steal our credentials. Here's how to make Google Chrome more secure.
The first tip is to avoid syncing on Google Chrome. Through this function, the Mountain View browser saves all the information in our account and then retrieves them if we change devices. In practice, both that we carry out online searches on the computer and on the smartphone we will synchronize the same history, the same passwords and the same cookies.
Surely this function is convenient and allows us to instantly resume an operation started on the desktop even from mobile. But our security suffers. To disable it, just open Chrome, go to the menu (the icon with three vertical dots) and then click on the Settings section. So let's look for the advanced synchronization settings and we choose what we want to synchronize with our devices. For example, if we want to delete the synchronization of the history, just remove the check mark.
Section Privacy and navigation in incognito
Always in the Google menu we put the check, in the Privacy section, under "Protect your device from dangerous sites" and "Submit a Do Not Track request with your browsing traffic". For those who want to protect their privacy more there is always incognito browsing. Even if with incognito browsing both our connection provider and the sites we visit will still be able to keep track of our passage.
