FAQ: Tracker Blocker for Chrome

How do I Stop Chrome from Tracking?

Any websites you visit on Google chrome without a tracker blocker, increases your chances of being followed around by trackers as you search the web. These trackers will gather your personal information and follow users around the web to learn about their browsing habits and personal preferences. Governments, big tech and many other companies can collect information on you.

Unless you have a tracker blocker browser extension or you’ve turned on your privacy settings on Google Chrome, your information is being collected by Google. This is to ensure that all the advertisements sent to you are tailored and accurate.
