Raise Security to Protect Dummies

Set up Firefox for nontechnical people.

First of all, the Firefox product is designed with nontechnical people in mind. Most of its fancy features are hidden behind unusual key presses or buried in menus. From the beginning, it’s pretty safe and secure. For the dazed and disoriented, though, safety doesn’t just mean safe from web villains and privacy attacks; it also means being safe from confusion. Struggling users can easily harm themselves accidentally when confused, so that’s something to avoid. Here are some of the configuration changes that you can apply to make life safer for struggling users:

  • Turn on automated patch updating.

  • Turn off password and form auto-complete features.
