The truth is out there and they’re tracking you down. Cookies are an accepted form of life on the internet. If you’re worried about online tracking then add this elegant little app to your Mac and forget about it.
Knocking On The Door
From Google to Amazon, and from Facebook to online advertisers, you are being tracked and hunted down while you browse the internet. A little paranoia goes a long way today.
Everywhere you browse there’s a trail that someone out there follows. Between cookies, Flash cookies, and local database storage, your browsing life is under siege.
Is there a way to defeat the intrusion and gain even a modicum of security for your online whereabouts?
Yes. but setting up anonymous VPN networks can be troublesome and actually cost money every time you go online.
Or, you could simply install Cookie, the Mac app that gives you management controls over browser cookies, Flash cookies, and local browser database storage.
There’s good news and bad news about Cookie.
First, the bad news. You get options to manage cookies and browser history that are a little complicated and mostly unnecessary.
Privacy is important in the 21st century, so, second, Cookie can be setup to remove everything that offends or tracks your browser habits automatically.
That means you can still browse and not worry as much about those on the outside tracking what you’re doing on the inside.
I set Cookie to delete everything when I close down my browser. Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and a few other browsers all have their tracking files deleted automatically. The next use of the browser starts up clean and without a history for anyone to track or follow.
