Secure Web Browsing

Web browsing provides a plethora of information and access to the world’s knowledge however, it also opens the door to malicious attackers. Attackers may target the browser in order to spy on the data that it transmits (such as when users input personal data into forms) or exploit weaknesses in the browser in order to gain access to devices, files and other data stored in memory.

A secure browser is one that was designed from scratch to prevent attacks yet still providing an experience for users that is comparable to what they expect. A browser that is secure will display a green lock on the URL bar, and will display warnings if you browse on sites that don’t support HTTPS.

In addition to the security features browsers provide it is crucial to look for a browser that allows users to install vetted plug-ins, extensions and add-ons. Not only can these third-party applications could be a potential source for malware, but they also slow down a browser and introduce other vulnerabilities to the system.

A secure browser should offer a fast performance that doesn’t compromise the functionality. The best browsers must be user-friendly and not lag. This is especially important for organizations that need their employees to be able to work from home or other remote locations, as well as for students who must have the possibility of studying from any place with an internet connection.
