Security and privacy are some of the major concerns when using the internet. One of the more popular Open Source internet browsers Mozilla Firefox allows users to add extensions to the browser adding new functionality. Here are our picks for the top 5 Firefox security and privacy extensions that you should install for safer browsing along side using your SUPERAntiSpyware software on your PC.

Click on each link and it will bring you to the Firefox Extension website where you can learn more about the extension and its creators. Most of these extensions are available on other popular browsers, such as Google Chrome or Opera so do not feel limited to only Mozilla Firefox!

1) uBlock Origin – A lightweight ad-blocker and anti-tracking extension that is efficient on memory and CPU footprint.

2) Privacy Badger – Developed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).  Privacy Badger is an anti-tracking extension that stops advertisers and other third party trackers from tracking where you go on the web. Privacy Badger Works great alongside uBlock Origin.

3) HTTPS Everywhere – Developed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and The Tor Project. HTTPS Everywhere ensures that you always connect to a website using a secure HTTPS connection if one is available. HTTPS is a form of encryption making your browsing much more secure.

4) DuckDuckGo Plus – DuckDuckGo is the search engine that doesn’t track you. This add-on makes DuckDuckGo your default search engine and includes some other useful features.

5) NoScript Security Suite – Preemptive approach to prevent security vulnerabilities out on the web. It allows JavaScript, Java and other executable content to run only from sites you trust, guarding your trusted sites against cross-site scripting attacks (XSS), cross-zone DNS rebinding / CSRF attacks (router hacking), and Clickjacking attempts.
