Using the Cocoon browser add-on to protect yourself may not be the only way, but it’s certainly one of the easiest. Cocoon’s Mailslots feature is a great tool to use for avoiding spam as well as possible identity theft or phishing attempts. The less you use your primary email address, the less likely it is to fall into the wrong hands. And should you fall victim to a phishing attempt, using a disposable email address will make sure the criminal involved doesn’t get ahold of your real information.
Browsing the Internet with Cocoon will route all of your traffic through our encrypted servers, so prying eyes cannot see it. This is especially valuable on a public WiFi network where man in the middle attacks commonly occur. Employing Cocoon while using Facebook, banking, or shopping on a public network will keep lurking predators from hijacking your private session.
Cocoon’s encrypted tunnel will ensure that viruses and malware never reach your computer. This highly decreases your chances of becoming part of a botnet, having your personal data stolen, or worse. Don’t give cyber criminals the advantage, stay safe and be vigilant.
