Issue: How stop websites from tracking you on Safari 11
I have recently found out that many popular websites are tracking and collecting information about its users. I feel unsafe, so could you please help me turn off website tracking on Safari 11? Thanks!
Websites not always gather the same details about their users. However, the collected information can usually be categorized as non-personally and personally identifiable. We want to point out that there is a huge difference between these classifications which should not be ignored.
Personally identifiable information (PII) refers to such details that can help to identify, contact or locate the person, including full name, home and email addresses, date of birth, telephone number, etc. On the contrary, non-personally identifiable information (non-PII) cannot be used to trace user's identity. This data consists of IP address, browser history, clicked ads and many more.
Even though websites usually collect non-PII, there is a high risk that users might unconsciously provide personal details among such data. For example, if they type their email address in website's search bar, developers will have full access to this information. Likewise, people allowing for sites to track them are putting their privacy at risk.
Additionally, non-personally identifiable information is typically used for advertising purposes. Websites analyze and take advantage of the ability to track browser's history. In other terms, users might be lured into clicking on potentially dangerous ad since it will be designed to correspond to his interests.
Therefore, we strongly advise you to turn off website tracking and take other precautionary measures to not only protect your privacy but computer's system as well. For this reason, we have prepared instructions on how to stop websites from tracking you on Safari 11.
