Ghostery is the first browser extension that makes your web browsing experience faster, cleaner and safer by detecting and blocking thousands of third-party data-tracking technologies – putting control of their own data back into consumers’ hands. Launched in 2009, Ghostery has more than seven million monthly active users who access the tool via the free apps or browser extensions. With its intuitive user interface, Ghostery enables average internet users to protect their privacy by default, while expert users benefit from a broad set of features and settings.
Headquartered in New York, the Ghostery apps and browser extensions are developed and operated by Ghostery, Inc., a fully-owned subsidiary of Cliqz GmbH. Cliqz is a German search, browser and data protection technology company backed by Mozilla and Hubert Burda Media. Neither Cliqz nor Ghostery share any data about individual users with third parties.
