    "i thought avast was more talk than actions but i noticed that a lot more security was added into my browser since i tried to switch onto it. i mean that there were less ads, less pop ups, and i think my network is more protected by avast, but hey, i am no expert and it might be placebo, but i think avast is worth a try. :)"

DID YOU KNOW?

Everything is now becoming digital and there's nothing more exciting than browsing through your crush's Facebook profile, signing up on a dating site, buying games from Steam, and of course shopping online (girls, it is okay to feel guilty). However, did you know that your every internet activity is being followed by tracking sites? If you didn't get scared enough, did you know that all the information that you put is collected by also the same tracking sites? That means beyond your name or credit card number, your favorite color, food, place to visit, and even your smallest interests--they all make up for your identity. And these information are not just used merely for marketing. Sometimes, they are used for identity theft. It's crazy how your passion for something can be used by other people to take advantage of you. This how internet fraud begins. Do they do this manually? No, again, everything is digital and automated.

If you haven't been cautious about your browsing security, it's the time to follow safe internet browsing tips. First, safe browsing starts with your browser. Make sure to consider different factors in choosing the best safe browsers that will suit your need. Ensure that they can protect your from social engineering malware and phishing. Also, better if they have URL filtering, download protection and the 'do not track' feature. Second, installing antivirus software is non-negotiable. Make sure to get the best antivirus to protect your device, and more importantly yourself. When you are heavy downloader of torrent files, installing the best VPNs is also a must as they encrypt your data when working on a not secure Wi-Fi connection. Third, change your passwords from time to time to avoid stagnancy. Hackers and other phishing websites may develop a pattern in your activities that would lead to your password. Fourth and definitely not the last among the list of tips, never ever give out personal information to any website. Don't be a victim of fraud.

    "many people said don't bother trying vivaldi as a browser and just ngo for chrome or safari but i tried it anyway and enjoyed it thoroughly. but mind you, i aint a heavy browser, and i usually disable images and i avoid too unsafe sites, so i think i do most of then protecting myself rather than the browser. if you are too fond of visiting high risk pages i think this one is for you.,"
