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 27
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!
