How are Ghostery Lite’s default settings selected and how do they protect me from unwanted trackers?

We’ve organized all the trackers in our extensive database by category. Of these categories, we block advertising, site analytics and adult advertising trackers by default, while the following categories remain unblocked: customer interaction, social media, essential, audio/video player, and comments. These unblocked categories have been deemed non-malicious and are less likely to hinder your browsing experience. The default settings offer immediate tracker and ad blocking upon installation, allowing you to visit the websites you love without any hassle and with a lot less clutter. For users who may prefer greater control over tracker categories, the custom settings pane in the Ghostery Lite Mac apps allows you to choose what tracker categories to block or unblock.
