    Default "Stealth" browsing on new security suite??

    G'day all,
    I have been running the Zonalarm security Suite for 4 years now and just upgraded for another years subscription today (also bought PC tune-up).

    The old version of security suite had a 'privacy setting' area where settings could be increased to allow 'stealth' browsing. It doesn't appear in the new version.

    Do I need to upgrade to the 'Extreme version' to get the capability back?

    Thanks for your replies.

    Default Re: Privacy browsing on new security suite 9.0 series

    Privacy controls were removed in series 9.0 branch of ZA firewalls, instead there is Advanced Download Protection/ Browser Security. Nowadays the the browser you use will have some sort of/ similar privacy control features - Firefox has several add-on's that will do the same or even better <> IE8 has 'in-private filtering', 'inprivate browsing,' you can make other adjustments with IE, etc.

    You can read thru ZA forum board > E-mail Protection, Privacy < where it has been discussed many times; for some advice and alternatives.

    The Extreme version does not contain 'privacy controls' but instead goes to a 'higher' level of security with the use of ForceField/ virutalization/ sandboxie type browser security.

    Click here for more info on ZA Extreme > http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en...e-security.htm <> Virtual Browsing is another layer of security; that you can also enact with a stand-alone ForceField (this is what I have - "I" think it's a pretty neat security tool to have)

    You can read up on a stand-alone ForceField to better understand 'virtual browsing' - click here > http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en...r-security.htm
