We highly advise that no matter which browser you use, you install a few key plugins/extensions to keep you more secure.
https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere is an extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure.
https://www.eff.org/privacybadger is an extension that stops advertisers and other third-party trackers from secretly tracking where you go and what pages you look at on the web.
https://lastpass.com/ is a password manager that simplifies password management by remembering your passwords, logging into your sites with one click, creating strong passwords for every account, syncing your passwords between devices, and doing it securely. For more information see our Password Security page.
https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock is a wide-spectrum blocker which by default blocks ads, trackers, and malware sites but can easily be configured to block even more. There is another plugin called “uBlock” which is a fork of “uBlock Origin”, however, we advise to only use the uBlock Origin version found at https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock
Optionally you can then add a list from https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts to your custom lists for further protection.
