Online ads can be annoying, frustrating, and potentially harmful to your computer. One way to help keep yourself safe online is to install an ad blocker extension to your web browser. In addition to blocking ads that might contain viruses or spyware, these extensions can also help web pages load faster and prevent advertisers from tracking your online behavior.
If you want to know more about the ad block extensions we recommend, as well as other actionable things you can do to improve your cybersecurity, please attend Protecting Your Privacy Online at the Central Library. During the class, we will walk through how to install an ad blocker together, and discuss how your online data gets shared and what you can do to protect your personal information.
Please note, using an ad blocker may impact how your saved lists and reading history display in your Denver Public Library account.
