    Geolocation


    Geolocation Meaning


    Geolocation is the identification or estimation of the real-world geographic location of an object, such as a radar source, mobile phone, or Internet-connected computer terminal.


    How does geolocation work on browser?


    IP Geolocation
    Your position is determined based on databases of lookup tables which map IP addresses to locations. The accuracy is typically based on a database which will only return location data accurate to a City or an area within a City. At its most precise though, an IP address can be mapped to a house






    Geolocation purpose :


    Geolocation makes it possible, from any device connected to the Internet, to obtain all types of information in real time and locate the user with pinpoint accuracy at a given point in time. Geolocation technology is the foundation for location-positioning services and location-aware applications (apps). With the number of smartphone users expected to reach 2.66 billion by 2019 and more than 2 million apps available in both the Android and iPhone markets, the prevalence of geolocation technology will only continue to increase.

    Cross Site Tracking


    Meaning :

    It's exactly what it sounds like: cross-site tracking generally refers to companies collecting browsing data across multiple websites. ... But often, that data also ends up being used behind the scenes to target advertising or create user profiles.


    The new Intelligent Tracking Prevention feature detects and eliminates cookies and other data used for this cross-site tracking, which means it helps keep a person's browsing private. The feature does not block ads or interfere with legitimate tracking on the sites that people actually click on and visit.

    Cookies First / Third Party Blocking





    Cookie Meaning:


    A computer “cookie” is more formally known as an HTTP cookie, a web cookie, an Internet cookie, or a browser cookie. The name is a shorter version of “magic cookie,” which is a term for a packet of data that a computer receives, then sends back without changing or altering it. No matter what it’s called, a computer cookie consists of information. When you visit a website, the website sends the cookie to your computer. Your computer stores it in a file located inside your web browser. (To help you find it, this file is often called “Cookies.”)

    Cookies are messages that web servers pass to your web browser when you visit Internet sites. Your browser stores each message in a small file, called cookie. txt . When you request another page from the server, your browser sends the cookie back to the server.

    VPN






    VPN Definition :


    A virtual private network (VPN) is a network that is constructed using public wires — usually the Internet — to connect remote users or regional offices to a company's private, internal network.

    A VPN is a private network that uses a public network (usually the internet) to connect remote sites or users together. The VPN uses "virtual" connections routed through the internet from the business's private network or a third-party VPN service to the remote site or person.


    Why Use A VPN ?


    A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a great tool to protect your privacy and increase your security on the Internet. It basically connects two computers securely and privately on the internet. A VPN is designed to provide a secure, encrypted tunnel to transmit the data between the remote user and the company network


    Does My ISP Know I am Using A VPN ?


    While using a VPN, your ISP cannot decipher the contents of your internet traffic nor can it figure out where your traffic is traveling to or from. That means your ISP cannot see what sites you visit or anything you do while connected. It can only see that encrypted data is traveling to a server.

    DNS Leaks / Leaking








    Meaning :

    A DNS leak refers to a security flaw that allows DNS requests to be revealed to ISP DNS servers, despite the use of a VPN service to attempt to conceal them.[1] Although primarily of concern to VPN users, it is also possible to prevent it for proxy and direct internet users.

    A DNS leak is a problem with the network configuration that results in loss of privacy by sending DNS queries over insecure links instead of using the VPN connection. A DNS query is a request made by an user to translate the name of a server (a hostname, like www. gmail. com) to an IP address.



    What is a DNS leak and why should I care?


    Most Internet service providers assign their customers a DNS server which they control and use for logging and recording your Internet activities.

    WebRTC









    Meaning: WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) is a free, open-source project that provides web browsers and mobile applications with real-time communication (RTC) via simple application programming interfaces (APIs).

    Turn Off reasons : One major reason that why internet users disable WebRTC is because of the fact that it leaks IP addresses of users connected online during real time. Thus, there's this loophole existing when using a VPN that it leaks IP addresses
