Ghostery: A Comprehensive Tracking Program

Ghostery is a free security tool that works on your browser or phone to help keep your browsing private. It's made by a company in Germany called Cliqz International GmbH, but it started with David Cancel. What Ghostery does is pretty cool: it spots those sneaky codes on websites that track what you do online and stop them. This means less tracking through cookies and other tricky methods. You can use Ghostery on many browsers like Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, and also on iOS and Android devices. It's all about giving you more control over your privacy.

Ghostery features and functionality

Ghostery has some neat tricks up its sleeve:

  • Blocking: Its main job is to stop trackers from spying on your online activities. Websites use these trackers to collect info on what you like, for ads or to see how their site is used. Ghostery:
    • Stops these trackers in their tracks.
    • Keeps an eye out for new trackers and blocks them too.
    • Lets you make a "safe list" of sites where you're okay with being tracked, if you want.
    • Makes sure that once a tracker is blocked, it can't get any info from its cookies.
  • Reporting: Ghostery tells you what trackers it found and if it blocked them. You can see this info by clicking its icon in your browser. It even shows you a quick list of trackers on a site with a purple box, so you know exactly what's going on.
