How to remove hidden trackers in your browser?

As long as the phone is on, the data will be shared. This happens whether you use an iPhone or an Android, but one company tracks much more than the other. I bet anyone can find your home address, phone number, and other personal information, often for free. I respect my privacy, which is why my team and I have created a great resource to help you. Advertisers are known to monitor your behavior and where you go online. This is very valuable and useful information. Here is how to remove hidden trackers in your browser:

The wrong type of cookies

Treats cookies as traces of you on the Internet. When you visit a website, a first-party cookie is generated and stored in your browser. Save things like login and shopping cart details so you don’t have to fill them in every time. First-party cookies also store options and settings.
This is useful, but cookies can also be intrusive. Companies use cookies to understand where you are and your online activities. They will even work on a different website than the one you are visiting. Advertisers love cookies because they help personalize the ads you see. If you’re interested in your ads, you’re more likely to click on them, which means more ROI.

Pro TIP: You can block third-party cookies and other intrusive tools through your browser. Protection levels vary, but it’s worth changing the default settings. Blocking cookies and third-party tracking is one thing, but what if you weren’t forced by the tracking method in the first place? This is where AdChoices and WebChoices come into play.

AdChoices is a project of the Digital Advertising Alliance, a group of self-regulated advertising and marketing companies that provide you with targeted advertising options. Why are they self-organizing? So, of course, no one intervened. Try this the next time you see an ad online. Look for the AdChoices applet. It looks like a blue triangle with a small “i” in the middle. Click to learn about, change, and block advertising. Not all advertisers participate in the program, but you’ll know when you see the code. AdChoices has a tool called WebChoices. You can use this tool to exit multiple companies in one step. Like AdChoices, this is only available to companies participating in the program.
I understand this – I used it to delete 144 different tracking cookies!

How to use WebChoices:

  • Visit https://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2&lang=EN WebChoices checks your browser and computer to determine whether its own and third-party cookies are enabled, as well as a list of companies that serve you targeted advertising. If you’ve used the tool, you can also see companies that have previously been disabled.
  • When the status check is complete, click Continue.
  • Check the Ad Personalization column of your browser to see which companies use targeted ads. If it says “Yes,” you can opt-out of the business by checking the box below the “Unsubscribe” column.
  • Or you can select all by clicking deselect all.
  • After making your selections, click Submit Your Choices. (You can skip these steps by clicking Deselect All first.)
  • The site is processing your selection, then click Show Updated Results to see the results. The
  • WebChoices tool works with the browser you’re currently using, so if you use multiple browsers, enable it for each one. If you did not select all companies the first time, try running the analysis again.
  • If you delete your cookies, you may not see the company’s opt-out option, so please check back from time to time.
