Be A Web Detective

 

Mark Seguin has discovered another free program that we would like to recommend,

This program is your window into the invisible web and provides you with the information about the tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons that are included on web pages in order to get an idea of your online behavior. This program tracks the trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity. And it’s a free browser tool that works with Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer.

If you’ve ever wondered what information is being collected about you and potentially used to steal your identity, then this is the program for you.

Detect
Ghostery sees the invisible web – tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons. Ghostery tracks the trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity.

Learn
After showing you who’s tracking you, Ghostery also gives you a chance to learn more about each company it identifies. How they describe themselves, a link to their privacy policies, and a sampling of pages where we’ve found them are just a click away.

Control
Ghostery allows you to block scripts from companies that you don’t trust, delete local shared objects, and even block images and iframes. Ghostery puts your web privacy back in your hands.
