Umatrix is a point-and-click web content blocker. On this channel we mostly talk about protecting your privacy, which is how we are going to use this tool. But uMatrix is also extremely effective firewall that will stop a lot of malware, trackers, and malicious code from making their way into your device. And because it blocks a lot of unnecessary bloatware on websites, it will also save you significant amounts of bandwidth consumption.
Umatrix was built so that third party websites can’t snoop on your private information they shouldn’t have access to in the first place. Web developers can’t be trusted with their security and often times, even they don’t know how much they expose and leak your private data. And that goes for the big sites like Google and Facebook as well.
Let’s take control of our online privacy and security.
After you downloaded and installed uMatrix from your browser extension repository, the first step is to understand what it does. What’s great about this add-on is that you don’t have to understand everything. You can be as novice or as advanced with it as you want to be.
So first we are going to look at the interface and explain umatrix, then we’ll interact with it a little bit, we’ll go over some settings and then I’ll show you some tips & tricks that you may want to use.
