If you want to protect your information online, Firefox and the collection of privacy tools can monitor your personal information while you visit websites.
By default, Mozilla & # 39; s Firefox web browser for Windows and MacOS now protects you against trackers that collect your browsing history, cross-site tracking cookies that track you from site to site (and how advertisements follow you), cryptominers that use secretly source your device's resources to mine cryptocurrency and fingerprint machines that uniquely identify you based on your device, settings, and apps.
But much of the work that Firefox does on behalf of your privacy is done in the background, so a light shines on how long sites are going to follow you online, Firefox now has a privacy report that gives you a real-time insight into how often websites have information you try to collect without your permission. Here you can read how to use the new Firefox privacy protection report.
