Firefox Improves Security by Blocking Third Party Cookies

In a recent announcement, Mozilla has revealed that it won’t be tracking new users by default.

According to the announcement, users who downloads Firefox 67.0.1 or later version will have Enhanced Tracking Protection turned on by default which will block all of the known third-party cookies within the browser. If you are using Firefox, you will be able to turn on the feature by going to the main menu and then navigating to Privacy and Security tab to find relevant box to block cookies.

Moreover, the organization also revealed Firefox Lockwise. This latest feature might sound familiar to you as the service was offered for Android and iOS users for a long time and was known as Lockbox. Lockwise will be a separate passwords manager for desktop versions of Firefox.

Apart from these security changes, the company also revealed Firefox Monitor. It will offer similar services offered by Have I Been Pwned which lets you know if your email address was compromised in a data breach. However, Firefox uses a new dashboard to keep you updated about this information.
