Back in the glory days of torrents and peer-2-peer downloading, it was almost laughable how simple it was to get things for free off the internet. Now in this social day and age where large corporations and hackers alike are getting craftier on how to detect items straight off your desktop, it’s hard to tell what sites are secure anymore. Ghostery solves this problem by telling you exactly who and what is taking data from you.
Link Ghostery with an AdBlocker and you’re all set to go into the deep dark depths of the internet, worry free.
DETECT: Ghostery sees the “invisible” web, detecting trackers, web bugs, pixels, and beacons placed on web pages by Facebook, Google, and thousands of other companies interested in your activity.
CONTROL: Ghostery allows you to block scripts, images, objects and framed documents from companies that you don’t trust.
COLLABORATE: Ghostery also includes the optional, opt-in feature called Ghostrank, which sends Ghostery servers anonymous information about the trackers you encounter and where you encounter them. This allows us to create a more comprehensive list of detectable items, and helps us create a more transparent behavioral advertising ecosystem.
PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY: Ghostery is built and maintained for users that care about their online privacy, and is engineered with privacy as a primary goal. Ghostery use is anonymous. No registrations or sign-ups are required. The Ghostery plug-in does not place cookies into your browser.
