Some questions about tracking and privacy online
Hello, I am a Freedome and SAFE user and I'd like to ask a few questions that have been troubling me.
1. How come I always get a Google cookie just by opening Chrome or Firefox (I am using Windows), even thought I have all cookies blocked on both? The cookie is a google.com PREF cookie. My home page in both browsers is blank. Apparently Google's phishing protection gives me the cookie. Cool?
2. I use Freedome and FS SAFE Browser (Private browsing on) on iOS. I am not logged into any service, but Google Translate shows me my translating history and F-Secure Safe Search suggests me my previous searches. I have tried manually clearing browser data and resetting advertiser id from iOS settings.
3. Using the iOS setup mentioned above, I tend to get advertisements related to some of my apps that I use. Before installing said apps I didn't get those adverts. I also tried resetting advertiser id to get rid of those, but the ads came back even thought I didn't even open the apps after the reset.
