    Maxthon's 3-Step Approach to Better Security

    At Maxthon, security and privacy aren't terms to be thrown around, they are a promise. We have the arsenal of security systems and processes to keep you and your data safe as you freely enjoy your web the way you want it, when you want it, wherever you want it. We look the question of security in three major areas:* (1) Encryption for over the air (OTA) processes; (2) Data management in the Cloud and (3) Personnel practices.

    Let's look at the 3 areas using the Maxthon Cloud browser, starting with number one. In most browsers and websites most of these requests aren't encrypted.* Device encryption is based on the concept of cryptography, a method long used to keep information secret. User information such as favorites and browsing history is translated into an encryption algorithm and spread out amongst several different web servers, turning it into unreadable text.

    We don't make it easy for hackers. Simply put, if an unauthorized individual or government agency tries to hack your browser looking for data or files, they will be met with a wall of mumbo-jumbo and your information remains safe. ~ op cit

    Well, hopefully this should answer some of the questions surrounding Maxthon's security.

    Well, I'm very glad that they took an opportunity to discuss their security, but that is very general stuff there and doesn't really say much. Testing is all that will really determine how secure or not a product is. That's not a knock on Maxthon, that's just reality. I've got a handful of friends who have used Maxthon for some time and they all praise it.

    Yeah, I'm none the wiser either. :D ;)

    Hi Daveski,

    As you are a Maxthon user, is there a convenient way to 'Send Link' (of current webpage) using my default email client (Outlook)?

    Also, re Maxthon's Better Security, do you think using Magic Fill for my passwords is very secure?

    Hi Cruise

    I use Maxthon but I have no idea if you can do that. I don't even actually use the cloud service (yet).

    The best thing you can do is to download Mx & see if you can.

    I'd trust it myself.
