A Light, Simple, yet Powerful Web Browser Add-On Specially Designed to Block Pop-Ups, Annoying Advertisements and Trackers from Monitoring Your Online Activity
Ghostery is a handy and trustworthy browser add-on that enables you to determine the companies that track your online behavior and helps block trackers.
Reliable ad blocker and privacy guardian
Ghostery provides add-ons for most popular web browser such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, as well as safari and, as a result, you’ll be able to protect your privacy regardless of the used browser.
Thanks to Ghostery, you can be your own detective and discover the invisible web filled with tags, cookies, bugs, beacons and over 1900 ad networks, web publishers, behavioral data providers and other parties interested in your online activity.
Reveal information about your trackers
Moreover, Ghostery helps you discover more about the above-mentioned companies, decide what you want to share and what needs to stay private. The Ghostery Knowledge Library offers access to numerous companies and their profile, from where you can learn more about their technology, privacy policies, and business.
Once you discovered who’s tracking you, you’ll be able to make an informed decision and decide if you want to restrict their access to your data. Thus, you can personalize your browsing experience and allow some or none of the visited pages to track your activity.
Allow or restrict access to your online behavior with ease
From Ghostery’ toolbar icon you can view the number of blocked trackers, access the Options page and allow or restrict the access to your data. By accessing the Options page, you can decide whether to share or not anonymous statistical data with Ghostery HQ.
Furthermore, allows you to create a whitelist with the trusted websites and view the trackers blocked so far. The Advanced tab helps you enable or disable the built-in alert system and allows you to change the auto-update and blocking options.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Ghostery for Mac and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
