6 Use Browser-Based Privacy Features
Safari has a number of built-in privacy and security settings, including several new ones that were added in macOS High Sierra.
- You can access and enable these settings in Safari by going to Safari > Preferences. In the Privacy or Security menus, you’ll find options to restrict cross-site tracking and block cookies, among others.
- If you’re a Chrome user, you can access a similar suite of settings by clicking on the three-dot menu icon. From then, go to Settings > Advanced and look under the Privacy and security heading.
Whether you use Chrome or Safari, we recommend enabling as many privacy and security settings as possible (unless they seriously conflict with your routine browser usage, which they shouldn’t).
