  • Tech Discussion Firefox Can Now Help You Block Cryptominers
    #1
    Quote:Is your computer fan spinning up for no apparent reason? Your electricity bill inexplicably high? Your laptop battery draining much faster than usual? It may not be all the Netflix you’re binging or a computer virus. Cryptocurrency miners may be using your computer’s resources to generate cryptocurrency without your consent. We know it sounds like something out of a video game or one of those movies that barely gets technology right, but as much as cryptomining may sound like fiction, the impact on your life can be very real.

    Just another reason to love Firefox. I already had an extension that blocked cryptomining, but this announcement caused me to go in a check settings . I found even more helpful ways to maintain privacy online that I hadn't noticed before. Smile
