Customize Browser Security Settings

Choose a setting that suits you

  1. With IE open, choose Tools@@-->Internet Options and click the Privacy tab, as shown below.
  2. Click the Settings slider and drag it up or down to select different levels of security settings. The information to the right of the slider changes depending on your setting.
  3. Read the choices and select a setting that suits you. The default setting, Medium, is probably a good bet for most people who have a basic sense of how to avoid risks online. If you set a higher or lower level of security and want to restore the default setting at any point, click the Default button on the Privacy tab in the Internet Options dialog box or move the slider back to Medium.
  4. Click OK to save your new settings.
