Web Browser Security

Security settings for your web browser:
Each web browser has different security settings.  For example, in Internet Explorer, you can find settings by clicking TOOLS on your menu bar, then INTERNET OPTIONS, then the SECURITY tab, then the CUSTOM LEVEL button.

In Firefox, you click TOOLS on the menu band then OPTIONS, then either CONTENT, PRIVACY or the SECURITY tabs to explore basic security settings.


Determining the best security settings for your browser:
Ideally, you would set your security for the highest level possible, however restricting certain features may limit some web pages from loading properly.  The best approach is to adopt the highest level of security and only enable features when you need functionality.
