Privacy Extensions by Platform:

Chrome Safari Firefox

A browser extension is a small software program that extends the functionality of a web browser. The extension may add features to the browser, or change its default behaviour. Privacy extensions are designed to protect users from snooping and tracking by third parties, including advertisers and website owners. They can prevent these entities from collecting information about user browsing habits, such as how often they visit certain sites, what they click on while on those sites, or their location data.

If a hacker attempts to break into your computer, they will try to bypass any security software running on it first. To do this, they will attempt to download certain browser add-ons that will try and disable your security software, which can lead to privacy leaks. With the best and most secure browser add-ons, you can be sure that your info is safe. Some privacy extensions also offer other protections, like blocking scripts that would otherwise track your mouse movements or send data back to a server in another country.
