Removes the part of the URLs that is used to track you on the web
What is UntrackMe?
UntrackMe is a lightweight Chrome extension dedicated to ensuring your privacy. It is designed to strip out tracking parameters from URLs as you browse the web, ensuring your activities aren’t being followed without your permission. Note: UntrackMe is not an ad-blocking tool or a data tracker; it just simplifies URLs to prevent unwanted tracking.
Would you want someone following you around your home, grocery store, work, friend's house, local bar and anywhere else you fancy going?
That's exactly what's happening right now on the web when you are casually sipping a cup of coffee or wine or just warm milk and surfing the web - someone is watching your steps - without your permission. We want to fix that.
