Google Chrome for Mac

  1. 1. Setting up Tracking Protectionin Google Chrome 17 1
  2. 2. Google Chrome offers many tools to protect user privacy. Here are some of the most popular ones:• Ghostery can block the invisible tracking cookies and plug-ins present on many websites. Once installed, the program shows you all the tracking that’s going on while you browse the Web and lets you choose whether you want to block specific types of tracking, or all at the same time.• Adblock Plus blocks the display of ads and stops social networks from transmitting data about you after you leave those sites, even if the page you visit has a social plug-in on it.• Do Not Track Plus is the Do Not Track app that sends a request to websites not to track you, with a “plus” of also stopping third-party data exchanges. So for example, when you visit a site with Facebook, Twitter and Google+ buttons on it, no information will be exchanged with those third parties unless you choose to click on 2 those buttons.
