SB018 Adds security or privacy extensions to browsers

Security or privacy extensions prevent third parties from following you around the web and helps you block unwanted ads. This increases the security and privacy of your web browser. Extensions such as uBlock Origin, Ghostery and Privacy Badger are recommended by CybSafe.

Why is it important?

Security extensions can add valuable features which are not available on standard browsers. This can help protect data and privacy, as well as guard against malware.
