Who's Tracking You?

Tuesday Tech Talk

Living in a connected world sucks sometimes. By browsing the Internet, we are exposed to thousands of the unseen and unknown tracking technologies connecting you and your browser data to companies across the globe. What do they do this for? Well, they can customize how they target you with ads and communications, they can analyze your browsing behavior and they can integrate their own third-party web browser technology. These trackers generally slow down page load times as they transmit and download data, increase clutter on websites with ads and pop-ups and often put your information at risk as they share your browsing behavior with other companies.

This is happening hundreds of times a week and thousands of times a month on all your devices. There are many third-party companies that will allow you to block most tracking software. Take a moment if you haven’t done that yet and do a little tiny bit of research. In the long run it will pay off.
