Having private browsing in Mozilla’s Firefox browser is an added layer of protection not only to the spying eyes but also to the vast security threats online. Now Mozilla is making your next Firefox browser even more secure by combining private browsing with tracking protection feature. The dual layer of protection serves as a wall that blocks those parts of a webpage that we visit that might collect information about our browsing activity. It’s one of the first modern browsers in the market to include such features. We might say yes to InPrivate Window of Microsoft Edge or perhaps the Incognito Mode in Chrome that removes our browsing history as we close them but that doesn’t stop sites from tracking our activity.

The new feature is available in Windows, OSX and Linux and just today on Android which can be downloaded from Google Play, but if you already have Firefox installed in your system, you should have already receive the latest update if you have set them automatically. The feature is on by default however if you do not feel the need to use the feature, you can turn them off by going to Settings > Privacy. Mozilla will also be introducing the browsing to iOS devices later this year and expect it to include the new security feature as well.
