I'm new, security conscious and not tech-savvy, I need beginner support and help, please?

Posted

I'd like to know which browser is most secure ... I don't like having my activity tracked. Also, I'm looking to set up a new email account, also secure, as my previous one exposed me to a virus. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

See if there are updates for your graphics drivers https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration


All browsers offer security. In the case of Firefox, there are sub-programs called add-ons that can offer even more of what you want.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.
