Today many people understand the importance of protecting personal information and privacy. We are terribly sharing all our personal information on social networks, different websites without considering ways for protecting our virtual life.
If you visit a website the webserver will start to check user’s cookies to collect data that will help website owner to evaluate the content, quality and navigation of the website, as well as the response time of Web pages. All this invisibly and without asking for permission, but this has nothing to do with you the visitor only it violates your privacy.
I have just installed Ghostery a very interesting tool that can help to protect your privacy, usually on any CMS people adds some scripts/plugins to track visitors, now this tool allow you just to block tracking plugins without touching other extension that maybe useful for you.
All you need to do is install it on your browser and you will find an icon added on the top right of the navigation page , and by visiting any new website you will find list of plugins and you can block what you find malicious or suspicious, so website owner have no information about visitors.
Also Ghostery can help to find what scripts are loaded with the pages that are usually running on the background, so if you find something useful you can add it to your website.
“Ghostery is your window into the invisible web – tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons that are included on web pages in order to get an idea of your online behavior. Ghostery tracks the trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity.”
