How to browse the web privately

The following steps can help you improve your privacy while browsing the internet. 1

  1. Change your default browser to Firefox.

  2. Change your search engine to DuckDuckGo.

  3. Add the https everywhere extension to Firefox.

  4. Add the privacy badger extension to Firefox.

  5. Add an ad block extension to Firefox. Some ad blockers are sponsored by corporations to allow their ads through. My current favourite, for the fact that it blocks ALL ads, is Ad Blocker Ultimate.


  1. I have kept this article short on purpose. There are, of course, many additional ways to increase your security and privacy, but the above steps should be the absolute minimum taken by every single person who uses the internet. [return]
