Hello all! :)

Not much changed since my 2019 config. However, there are a few minor changes;
  • I don't use I don't care about cookies anymore. There was a conflict between that extension and uBlock Origin (some elements weren't blocked). Instead, I'm using cookie filter with uBO; not as effective, but everything works well.
  • I decided to get rid of CCleaner completely, so now I'm cleaning cookies using Cookie AutoDelete extension. I've disabled auto-clean and I'm cleaning cookies manually.
  • Making data backups weekly now.
Can't really tell the exact date when I changed my security config, so I put the last date I had major changes.
And that's it! My PCs at home are still free of malware for a very long time. 👍👌
