What’s the Best Browser For Me?

Browsers are our window to the internet.

Browsers save a lot of information about our internet use. Sites you visit place cookies on your computer that record the pages and products you browsed. Your browsing history is used to make it easier for you to find and revisit sites and, importantly for businesses, to build detailed demographic information about you for marketing. This course will explore the privacy and security settings in the most popular browsers, talk about using privacy mode, and show students how to erase their surfing history in the Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari browsers.

Oasis Connections has been teaching people online safety and privacy since 2004. The Cybercrime Fighters series can also include Safety and Privacy Online, Going Wireless: How to Use Wi-fi, and Introduction to Email. Introduction to Email features use of an encrypted email program–Gmail.
