Disabling Java in browsers and OS

What is Java and how to disable itModern browsers are not just windows for browsing the web. They contain additional tools that perform a number of tasks related to displaying pages, network code operation, data transfer, viewing media files and other functions that are used in the browser. These functions are useful in themselves, so initially they are often enabled in the browser in order to save users from tedious browser settings after installing it.

And Java is an example of such a technology. Java itself is a platform and programming language that developers use to create applications, scripts, and web page elements. Java is also used when working with a large number of programs and applications which you’re using. Browsers also use Java technology to correctly display the content of pages, as well as to work with embedded elements. Despite all the benefits that this technology brings, there are critical flaws that are simply unacceptable to some users. The fact is that in Java there are vulnerabilities that lead to leakage of information about your device, IP address, and other information.
