I noticed when browsing an item I bought at Amazon, it showed I purchased this on my account! It shocked me because I go to other wesbsites and worry and my personal info going to another website by malicious websites. Do you use a type of WOT (web of truth) that shows if green for safe, yellow for not, red for danger? This is what I use for Firefox, though not always accurate.
I don't like (yet I do for Prime movies) it automatically logs you into your Amazon account.
I use Silk with accelerator turn off on my KF.
Amazon always logs what what you buy and shows the little yellow banner. I love it otherwise I would try to buy things I already own not to mention it comes in handy to remember when it was purchased or given away. I can easily tell the others in the Romance Deals thread. This is a repeat freebie from last month and so on.
No I don't use a WOT. I've been on the net since 91 and I'm pretty saavy on knowing what is fake and what is a real site. I do use Firefox with Ad Block Plus to block ads and other malicious popups and I don't have flash installed. I use Chrome for flash sites.
Those are really all I worry about on my PC.
It's not easy to steal someone's info unless you go to a phishing site and give it to them. As for Trojans and malware most are in ads and popups so a blocker is necessary not to mention a good firewall and Antivirus and the occasional malware\spyware checker.
