Ad Tracking is Not Unusal

Many of us enjoy starting the day off with a cup of joe and a good online word game, like Wordle.  Online games may be free but may still come with a price… advertisement trackers!  Ad tracking is the practice by advertisers of tracking your online behavior and browsing habits to sense your preferences and target you with specific ads based on your interests.  Ad trackers are not unusual on the web today and not all are advertising oriented (some are analytical).

What can you do about it?

First, pay attention to privacy mode and tracking before downloading a new app.  You can either accept these or you use blockers for your web browser or smartphone.  Second, if you have an iPhone, use the Safari browser for iOS because it will prevent trackers from profiling you!
