Web-Browser Security Recommendations

You are here

There are some simple steps to ensuring that your Internet browser is as safe and secure as it can be. This guideline is intended to be self-serve, but do not hesitate to contact DICTS support via or log a ticket via if you need assistance at any point.

1. Use a current, up-to-date Internet browser—for daily Internet browsing.

Follow the links below to update your browser
Google Chrome

Mozilla Firefox

2. Regularly check to make sure your browser and plugins are up to date— don’t assume that your computer will automatically download and install updates
for itself—regularly check the status of your browser and its plugin software to ensure they are up-to-date.

3. Run a browser scan to check your browser and its plugins. You may be asked to install a plugin if its supported by your computer, making for quick and easy
scanning on a regular basis—this is recommended. We have verified that the plugin is safe despite showing permission warnings in certain browsers.
