Regularly clear your browser history and cookies

Almost everything you do on the internet is recorded by your browser. Every site you visit, all the information you enter in online forms and cookies (small files downloaded onto your computer when you visit a website) all begin to build up. This could potentially provide someone with all the data they need to access your accounts or find your home address. Regularly deleting your browsing history is a good way to keep this risk to a minimum. In almost all web browsers, hitting Ctrl+Shift+Del opens a new tab where you can clear your browsing data. You’ll be presented with a series of options so you can tailor how much you want to delete.
