The web browser is an extremely complex piece of software. It lets you browse web pages, videos, games, images, forms and much more. Originally designed to display text documents, it now handles all the different media available through the Internet. This makes it harder for security experts to secure the internet, as it has a lot of “weak points” that hackers can exploit.
It is essential to ensure that your security settings are set to the highest level, regardless of whether you are using the default software installed on your PC or another browser you’ve downloaded. This will reduce the possibility of malware getting through and settling into your system. It is also a good idea to use the browser with a restricted account that does not have administrator rights. Even if malware manages get past the security settings of your browser, it will not be able to affect your system.
