Ghostery (Browser Extension)
You are tracked, each click you make, each rabbit hole you wonder down; utilised by third parties to sell you things or direct you towards their website. Some trackers do allow a greater interactive experience on certain websites others are just a plain nuisance. You may have noticed that particular advertisement that seems to follow you around the web? Even this website sends information to ‘Science Daily’ as to whether you click on their news stories.
Ghostery as the title above suggests is not a standalone programme but a browser extension. It allows you greater control over the tracking on websites. It is compatible with all of the key browsers. Switching on all its’ features may render some websites unusable so take care on the settings page. We just switch of all advertisement tracking and site analytics. For modern day browsing, Ghostery is a must.
