Review Your Browser Extensions

Browser extensions are mini-apps that run within your web browser. They are designed to provide additional functionality, such as a password manager, e-coupon service, ad blocker, and more. But oftentimes an extension appears to be helpful but is really borderline malware, tracking your browsing history, injecting their own ads, or modifying your default home page. The offending extensions I see most often are related to giving map directions, recipe shortcuts, and PDF conversion tools. It’s a good idea to periodically review what extensions are installed and if you don’t recognize or no longer need them, to remove them. To do so, click the menu button in the top right corner of your browser, then select Extensions (Chrome & Edge) or Add-Ons (Firefox). For Safari, go to Settings > Safari > Extensions.
