CLEAR HIS­TORY AND COOK­IES

Distinguished Magazine - - CYBERSECURITY -

Brows­ing his­tory and pass­words should al­ways be cleared at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals, if one does not want the search en­gines to pro­file them con­tin­u­ously. Clear­ing brows­ing his­tory lim­its the abil­ity of a browser to track and pro­file their users. On­line ac­tiv­i­ties of users are also tracked when browsers cache web­site IP ad­dresses from DNS servers. Flash cook­ies do the same as well. Hence it is ad­vis­able to clear the cache and cook­ies of browsers as fre­quently as pos­si­ble.
