VIDEO: Increase Your Internet Privacy With PETS

By - Source: Toms IT Pro

Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETS) help you maintain security and privacy online. In this video, I'm going to show you how to use three PETS web browser plugins:

  • HTTPS Everywhere -- a Firefox and Chrome extension that helps you browse more securely by encrypting your communications with a number of major websites.
  • Adblock Plus -- a Firefox and Chrome plugin that protects your online privacy by disabling tracking of your online activity and browsing history and blocking those annoying pop-up and banner ads.
  • NoScript -- a Firefox extension that blocks JavaScript, Java and Flash scripts from being executed from untrusted sites.
