Pointing Your Family In A Private Direction

Watchful Eye

Many of our family members use online services such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Today I'm going to give a brief rundown about taking your family in a better direction. I'm going to start with web browsing. In a second part, I will discuss about private messengers. So lets get right down to it.

Web Browser: A web browser, is an application that displays content on the world wide web. Many browsers have come and gone, but the popular ones active today are, Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, and Microsoft Edge.

Many people in your family may use Google Chrome as their primary browser. However, many people are unaware that Google Chrome employs tracking to know more about you such as, your location, what you've recently visited, and your favorite things. Talk to your family about these concerns, and talk to them about trying out Firefox. Firefox is a web browser from Mozilla, an organization that has many people who strive for an open, and private web. Firefox supports a wide range of add-ons that can be used to help protect their privacy. Facebook container can restrict Facebook from tracking you around the web. Ublock Origin, can help block trackers and ads while you browse. Firefox also offers their own tracking protection in the browser. Firefox offers sync, to allow your family member to use their profile across their devices.

There are many more add-ons out there, visit addons.mozilla.org to get started. You can also visit support.mozilla.org, and walk your family member through the basics.
