Stay safe while browsing.
Here’s a few suggestions for protecting yourself against web attacks:
your OS, browser, and browser plugins up-to-date.
- Run anti-virus software, and keep this up-to-date, too.
- Disable or uninstall any software or browser plug-ins you don’t use —
this reduces your vulnerability surface.
- If you receive a PDF attachment in Gmail, select “View” to view it
in Gmail instead of downloading it.
Free tool to check your browser security:
