Mozilla is still concerned about increasing the security of its Firefox browser. It recently launched its anti-cookies system called Full Cookie Protection. For a while, it was an option that you had to manually enable in Firefox settings.
However Mozilla has gone a step further and has just announced that from now on it will no longer be necessary to activate it, since it will come as standard with the new Firefox update. Any new feature that helps protect users' privacy is welcome.
Mozilla has just announced that from now on it will implement its Total Cookie Protection system by default for all users of Firefox. Until now, this protection system was optional, and you had to activate it manually.
For a few months, Firefox users could manually activate a new system of cookie protection that incorporates this browser. During this time, Mozilla has been testing this protection system, and having obtained the expected results, it has been decided to incorporate it "as standard" into its browser.
Said total cookie protection system is designed to prevent trackers from using cookies to follow the browsing history of any user who visits the different websites.
As explained by the developer of Firefox, the function builds a barrier around cookies and limits them to the site you are browsing, preventing tracking between different websites. Mozilla adds that the full cookie protection feature expose Chrome and Edge, and that he would like Google and Microsoft to follow his example to offer better protection to users.
On the other hand, it must also be said that Safari It has anti-tracking features similar to the new Firefox system, which prevent cross-web tracking and hide the IP address of the device you are browsing from.
