DisconnectMe – prevents third-party services from tracking you during your web browsing

DisconnectMe - prevents third-party services from tracking you during your web browsing

Users are generally not aware of privacy issues on the Internet, much less read the privacy policies of each service they register, which may be logical due to the technicalities and breadth of texts. Still, initiatives have emerged that offer the necessary tools to improve the security and privacy of users when browsing the web.

One of them is Disconnect.Me, a new online company that offers users of Chrome, Firefox or Safari web browsers, with extensions that will allow them to block or unblock the tracking of their browsing habits by accessing cookies and temporary files, used by advertisers and third parties services to collect personal information and offer personalized ads based on your browsing habits. There is an extension that groups certain services and other specific services for each of these three platforms: Facebook, Google and Twitter, which will allow users to browse these platforms without exposing their personal data to third parties.

In fact Facebook Disconnect was the origin of this new company, in which Brian Kennish and Austin Chau, both ex-Google engineers, and Casey Oppenheim are involved, under the idea that it is the users themselves who own their own data personal and it is they who decide what to do with them.
