Close web browser automatically (Linux)

When you clear your browsing data with VirtualShield, you can also choose to close your web browser automatically.

This will help prevent websites from creating any additional cookies or unwanted files on your computer after the browsing data is cleared.

Note: Compatible with Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera, and Brave.

Close Web browser

This allows VirtualShield to terminate your web browser automatically each time your browsing data is cleared using the Webcam Privacy add-on.

This feature is entirely optional, and can be enabled or disabled at any time:

Click the cog/gear icon near the corner of the app to open the Settings panel:
Inside the General Settings, select the Close web browser option:
Click the Save button to apply your changes.

Tip: You can also close your browser and other apps automatically each time the VPN becomes disconnected. See this article for more information.
