    µBO and Privacy Possum are a great duo!

    Hey Page42,

    Yeah, it may be overkill and Privacy Possum rarely has much to do but I do use both extensions.

    TY Bertazzone and Krusty. Privacy Possum is now installed on both 7x64 computers. I've read that "the extension indicates blocking activity by adding a number to its icon", and I don't see much of that happening. And neither do I see that there is much configuring to do.

    Page42, no there's nothing to configure. I rarely see a number on the icon, probably because uBO has most tracking covered, but I do see a number on some sites. There's one when I visit here for example - https://community.norton.com/en/forums

    Same experience here as @Krusty. I use µBO in medium mode so it blocks even more than default. No configuration needed for PP. It may show only "1" most often when there is something to do, but "1" may mean blocking trackers from 20+ sources. You can check it and see. These two extensions cover most everything. You can add Decentraleyes if you'd like to tighten it up more. :thumb:

    TY again, Bertazzone and Krusty. I will look into adding Decentraleyes for Chrome, as long as there is not too much redundancy between it and uBO and Privacy Possum. :thumb:

    After flip flopping and testing different security software on the Mac computer I decided to stay with the following only:
    AdGuard Browser Extension and Malwarebytes (beta) Browser Extension on Chrome & Firefox
    Malwarebytes Premium for Mac
