О Ghostery

We live in a connected world.  When you browse the internet, there are thousands of unseen tracking technologies that connect you and your browsing data to companies across the world so that they can target you with ads and communications, analyze your browsing behavior, and integrate their own third-party web technologies. These trackers slow down page load time as they transmit and download data, increase clutter on websites with ads and pop-ups, and put your information at risk as they share your browsing behavior with other companies.

The internet sucks.  Ghostery makes it suck less.

Ghostery offers a free browser extension and mobile browser that make browsing the internet cleaner, faster, and safer.  Ghostery detects and blocks tracking technologies on the websites you visit to speed up page loads, eliminate clutter, and protect your data and privacy.  It also keeps you informed on what companies are tracking you and gives you the tools you need to determine what to block and when.  Ghostery continues to innovate and evolve its products to provide the most effective tool in building a more private internet that puts the needs of users first.

Ghostery was created in 2008 by David Cancel and is based in New York City.  Cliqz GmbH, a German-based company headquartered in Munich, Germany and backed by Mozilla and Hubert Media acquired Ghostery from Evidon, Inc in 2017.
