Many of the pages that we usually visit are seen from the browsers that are integrated into some applications and that allow us to open links to websites without having to leave the application. Such is the case of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and most social networks.

However, using these browsers may not be the best option, especially if you are concerned about your privacy and that your data falls into the hands of someone you do not know.

The developer, Felix Krause, has discovered that these applications have the ability to monitor and record any activity that takes place on them. This includes the extraction of data such as passwords that are entered on web pages through these browsers.

The good thing is that it is very easy to avoid this type of monitoring, just touch the menu icon (three vertical dots in the upper right corner) of the link or ad that we want to visit, and then choose the “open with browser” option.
