About this Add-on
We live in a connected world. When you browse the web, your data leaves a digital footprint. This footprint, connected by tracking technologies (called trackers), helps companies build a profile about you and how you interact with their sites and their competitors, allowing them to optimize their communications and site experience to reach you - and others like you - at the right place, at the right time.

Ghostery gives you the control to make informed decisions about the personal data you share with the trackers on the sites you visit.

Enjoy a faster web
Some sites take too long to load. This can be due to trackers weighing your system down. Ghostery allows you to block the offending trackers and significantly speed up your browsing.

Get the content you want
Remove page clutter so you can focus on the content you want.

Control your data
Sometimes being connected can help you find the data you need quicker, like a location tracker that helps you find the closest cafe. Sometimes it spoils the fun, like a remarketing tracker, revealing the birthday present you wanted kept a surprise. Ghostery makes locking down your data easier.

Be Informed, Take Control
Ghostery gives you the tools needed to understand the different types of trackers and how they may impact your overall browsing experience, putting the power directly in your hands.

We are getting bombarded by the snow storm and have 14 inches already and it doesn't suppose to stop until 5pm tomorrow.
By the forecast it looks like we will end up with 20 to 24 inches and right now as I type the wind is blowing hard.

So far we have been lucky and the power hasn't went out.

What's New

Product Documentation

All Product Updates Listed Below:

End of last week, Palo Alto Networks published information about the "XCodeGhost" malware. Johannes already talked about it in today's podcast episode but I searched for more details about this story. Apple is known to be very strict with its application validation process. Every time a developer submits a new (or an updated) app, it must pass multiple security checks. Why so many applications infected by XCodeGhost successfully passed them? Could we imagine that Apple has some kind of trust with reputed developers or popular applications? Until now, ~50 applications have been reported vulnerable and mainly used in China. But some are popular worldwide like WeChat.
