Mozilla Firefox browser will maintain the privacy of its users by blocking the tracking of cross-sites when they are in private browsing

Many advertisers using cross-site tracking for many years to track the data of users in order to send them personalized ads. This method sometimes put the privacy of users in danger and some of the biggest tech giant companies are also trying their best to block cross-site tracking during web browser, for instance, Google Chrome introduced FLoC and privacy sandbox to protect the data of users, similarly, Apple Company launched the latest update in which the advertisers can only track the data of users after getting permission. Now, Mozilla has announced that Firefox 89 version will protect the privacy of its users when they are in private browsing mode.

It is absolutely a good step by the company to give the priority to the privacy of users. During the past few years, the number of users of Firefox was declining gradually, but this particular step can help the browser to get large traffic. In the latest launch of Firefox 89, the browser will allow full Cookie protection on the internet during the secluded browsing mode. Firefox is trying to attract more users by offering the experience of fast and sheltered browsing.

Mozilla Firefox will protect the data of users in such a way that it will compel the websites to keep their cookies isolated in a “jar” to avoid tracking the data of users in a private browsing mode. The Director of Security and Privacy product at Firefox said that Mozilla will create an isolated jar in which all the cookies from different websites that users try to search will be kept in, that will protect the users against cross-site tracking. Mozilla launched the cookie protection mode for the first time in the 86 version of the browser in the year 2016, but users had to switch ETP limit mode by going to the settings of Firefox, but now the company has said that it has that this mode will be available by default.

Mozilla has made this protection mode pretty strict; nonetheless, it has made some exceptions for cross-site cookies that are used for the purpose of non-tracking that can be used by having logins. The web browser in the latest update will also use the protection tool for super cookies tracking; it will delete the cache and other tracking cookies whenever users are in isolated browsing. Mozilla has also launched tools to block the trackers that are tracking the data of users and it also rolled out a smart-blocker to repair the web pages that are wrecked earlier.
