Get started with Midnight
See what’s protected at a glance
The home panel provides a quick glance of all the active apps making network requests on your device and their tracker protection status. There are three types of status:
- Protected: Your app is protected and any trackers we discover will be blocked.
- Monitored: Also known as unprotected, allows Ghostery to still monitor the network requests for trackers, but will not actively block them.
- Disabled: Network monitoring of the app has been disabled. This is only recommended if protection is hindering the apps functionality.
Customize which apps have blocking enabled
The My Apps panel, accessible via the side navigation menu, lists all active apps seen historically as well as tracker counts and protection status by app.
Customize the tracker protection setting of each app by selecting the appropriate toggle icon.
Turn different features on and off
Each one of our main features (VPN, Tracker Protection, Ad Blocking) can operate independently from one another. If you’d like to turn one off while keeping the others running, simply disable the toggle in the Home panel.
The Pause button turns off all monitoring of network requests, which means Midnight not only is not blocking, but cannot determine how many trackers are loading. You can either pause indefinitely or for a set time limit via the dropdown, but don’t forget to resume!
Select your preferred VPN location
Our VPN currently includes 5 different servers across the globe to connect to (and we’ll be adding more as we grow!). Before enabling the VPN, select the dropdown in the VPN section in the home panel, and select your preferred location.
