    initial v1  
    55We say that when we talk about security we mean ensuring that the Tor network is used properly without compromising the user anonymity, and when we talk about privacy we consider other properties like fingerprinting protection and linkability. Maybe we need a way to relate this to the security slider so that it is also easier to explain users the settings they are choosing.

    7 For example when making a decision about the preferred security level in the slider, we can assume the user might think that more security also means more privacy. In the read more paragraph in the slider itself we communicate the idea that that the lowest level is the closest thing to a firefox browser using Tor (more or less), if I increase the slider I have less features available while I surf the web, but also more protection against browser fingerprinting and linkability, therefore more privacy and scurity.

    99I don't know if is there an easier way to present this. An example I have in my mind is firefox focus. If I open firefox focus on mobile I have a setting that says tracking protection (on or off). It also tells me how many trackers the page implements.
