How to Secure Your Browser and Search the Internet Safely
Browsers help you move around the Internet, and search engines make it easy to find information on the Internet. A secure browser, combined with an antivirus/antispyware program, helps you identify safe and unsafe websites.
If you get a notification from your antivirus/malware program that a site you are trying to visit is unsafe, believe it. Don’t go there.
If a site asks you to change your browser settings in order to “improve your experience,” ignore the request and use a different website.
Allow downloads and execution of programs only when you absolutely trust and understand what the program will do.
