As technology becomes an increasingly integral part of our lives, you may be concerned with your privacy as your use your portable devices to visit websites and access online resources. One privacy decision many make on a routine basis is controlling the ability of advertisers to track your online presence through cookies on your desktop web browser. But what about your smartphone?
Fortunately for those concerned, there are smartphone privacy settings that you can configure on your Apple, Android or Windows device.
With all the data available about you online, consumers are starting to look to ways to help reduce the amount of information companies can gather from their web browsing habits.
I had a chance to speak to Bill Wills on Cleveland’s WTAM 1100 Newsradio about how websites can track you, what cookie files are and why some are good and some not so much, as well as a few free “do-not-track” programs to help reduce the information about your online behavior that is available.
