Our users enjoy online privacy protection that works out-of-the-box. No need for customization and maintenance!
We have three main components:
- Ad-Blocking - blocks all ads on websites you visit with your Chrome browser, including Youtube and Facebook, helping you to focus only on the information important to you.
- Anti-Tracking - stops trackers' ability to collect your personal data, replacing it with random values and anonymizing your identity for data brokers. If you see a need to unblock individual trackers, the option is available.
- Never-Consent - automatically removes intrusive cookie pop-ups and sends an important message to website owners telling them that you don't want to be tracked. This feature adds convenience to each website you visit and acts like your privacy advocate towards content providers while using Chrome.
Our ad-blocking extension comes with additional features not found in any other ad blocker:
- Trackers information on any website you visit, informing you about the number of trackers, their type, and the company operating them.
- Trackers Preview on search engine result pages - displaying tracker information even before you visit a page. If you decide to visit the website, Ghostery will block any trackers waiting for you there.
- WhoTracks.Me - Owning and operating the largest database of trackers allows Ghostery to update tracker information fast and reliably for all users.
