You’re being tracked online and you know it. Whether it’s Google, Facebook, or your favourite blog, there’s virtually no place on the Internet where you’re not assaulted by ads tailored to your browsing behaviour.
It seems inescapable, doesn’t it? And you’ve probably been told that it actually is and you might as well just give up trying to do anything about it. Or go live in the woods.
CyberGhost is here to tell you there is still hope:) Online tracking is not inescapable and if you’re just looking for some peace and quiet on the Internet, it’s also pretty simple.
There are some super-easy things that you can do right now to protect yourself from being tracked online:
1. Avoid being tracked online – The Incognito Browsing solution
What you do online while surfing incognito doesn’t get stored in your browser’s history, cookie store, or search history, so we recommend using incognito browsing whenever you’re Googling sensitive topics.
A good rule of thumb is asking yourself: Would I be comfortable showing this to my family? If the answer is no, then go Incognito.
2. Avoid being tracked online – Forget Google and switch to duckduckgo
Duckduckgo is a search engine (so an alternative to Google) that doesn’t profile its users, showing everyone the same search results. Unlike Google, which tracks and profiles search behaviour and adapts its results accordingly.
If you’re looking to keep your searches private from advertisers and other prying eyes in order to escape being targeted by custom ads, then duckduckgo is the search engine to choose.
3. Avoid being tracked online – Use our free, anonymous proxy browser
Our proxy encrypts your web traffic so nobody has any idea what you’re browsing, makes your web search anonymous, and also changes your IP, just to make sure you’re as protected as can be.
