This category covers the News section of HowToRemove.Guide. We primarily focus on news in the security and anti-malware industry, but not limited to them, as we have recently engaged in broader interests related to browsers, operating systems and their relationship to hardware.

User experience  has become a driving factor on the internet, merging areas which were once clearly separated. A prime subject in this is the intersection between the user privacy we all covet and how new features introduced to safeguard that privacy can be exploited by malware creators.

And the first step to that is to be constantly informed of all coming changes.
