Blocks ID Trackers With Ghostery (Browser Extension)

Not all websites are safe to visit. Some might have embedded invisible trackers on their website to track your activities. If you are looking a way to identify the trackers on a webpage and block the one that you suspect, the Ghostery browser add-on can help you.

Ghostery can identify the invisible ID trackers (ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity) on a webpage and gives you a chance to learn more about each company it identifies.


It also allows you block scripts from companies that you don't trust, delete local shared objects, and even block images and iframes.


Ghostery supports all major browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari and Opera), but blocking support for Chrome is experimental. After installation, you can configure it from the add-on option.
