    Heya everyone, it's been a while since I updated my security config so I thought that there's no better time than the beginning of the year to do so. I'm always interested in everyone else's configs so I figured I would update mine. Any changes/recommendations are also welcome. Take care members of MT! :)


    Level 29
    All 4 layers are covered.
    • Web Browser: uBo
    • Backup: Dropbox
    • Realtime & other: ESET
    • Firewall: Default and Glasswire

    My advice & other:
    • Add Scriptsafe to web browser
    • How are you finding Glasswire? Are you using free or paid?
    • Disconnect may not be needed whilst you already have uBlock Origin

    Thanks for sharing!
