How to Prevent Websites from Tracking Your Online Movements Using Cookies?

Are you sick and tired of viewing ads of some random product you had shopped online, practically on every site you have visited thereafter? Are you worried that someone on the web is closely monitoring your movements and tracking your Internet sessions? Are you looking forward for tricks to help you run away from the same? If you are answering in ‘Yes’, here’s interesting content that can help you remain out of the mess along with tips that you can share with your friends and family to help them remain safe as well…

What causes these repeated viewing of web ads?

Cookies are small codes that websites place on your computer for tracking information such as your preference, your taste in particular products and the basic pattern of your movement on that site. This helps them to make your subsequent sessions on that website smooth and faster. These are ‘good cookies’. However, there are ‘bad cookies’ also that track all this information for their own gains and this can indeed make your web sessions monotonous, annoying, and in some cases also scary.

There isn’t much you can do to remove that experience after it has already struck you. However, there are definitely a lot of things that you can do to prevent that experience from happening to you. Here’s what you can do.

  • Visit websites that are genuine and that do not track your online behavior and movement. Look around on the web, there are such websites that are working; only you need to find and use them.
  • Explore the security settings on your browser and enable the ‘Do not track’ mode. Check if there are other security settings also available on your browser; if there are, make use of them to keep away ‘spying cookies’ from playing games with you.
  • There are options that your browser allows in order to manage cookies. This can be especially handy at times when you must visit websites that place cookies on your computer for making your session pleasurable.
  • Be alert at all times when you are on the web – even when you are on safe websites!

Thus you can see that by being vigilant and a smart Internet user you can surely prevent cookies from hampering your Internet experience and also keep you safe. So, explore the security settings on your browser, your Internet connection and the websites that you visit regularly... and do this urgently!
