The web browser is an intricate piece of software. It can be used to view websites images, videos, and forms. The original purpose of the program was to display text documents, it today handles all the different media that can be accessed through the Internet. This makes it more difficult for security teams to secure, as it has a lot of “weak points” which attackers can exploit.
It is essential to ensure that your security settings are set at the highest level possible, regardless of whether you use the default software installed on your computer or an alternative browser you have downloaded. This will minimize the possibility of malware being able past your security and install onto your system. It’s a good idea to use the browser using a limited account that doesn’t have administrator rights. Even if malware is able to penetrate the security settings of your browser, it won’t be able to affect your system.
