    What is Click Jacking? - Reducing Your Click Jacking Risks

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Now that you know where you might encounter click jacking, it is time we talked about the ways that you can reduce your risks of being the victim. You did not really think I’d leave you defenseless, did you? That is not to say that I believe these methods will provide you with 100% effective protection, but doing something is always better than doing nothing. Nowhere is that more true than with your personal data.

    Step one, use Firefox and configure your browser for safety. Firefox by itself is not that much protection against click jacks. You need to know how to set it up in order to keep yourself safe.

    The first thing you’re going to do is set your browser to restrict use of frames. In order to do this you are going to open your web browser and type in “about:config.” Now look for the search bar next to the word filters and put in the word “frame.” The top search result should be “browser.frames.enabled;” double-click on this, and under the “value” column you should see the word in that column change to “false.” Please note that playing with the default settings of your browser can be risky, so I don’t recommend making changes willy-nilly. Always know how you did what you did, in case you don’t like the results and want to go back.

    Step two is much easier. Download “no script”( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722), a plug-in for Firefox. The plug-in is free and easily accessible. Even if you don’t have a great deal of technical knowledge, you should be able to do this.

    Despite the name, the software does not block all scripts, just scripts that come from sites you’ve not put on the trusted list. So even with this installed, you should still be able to do your online banking, and normal web browsing.
