Telecom Tracking Numbers Inquiry

F-secure Freedome,

I was hoping someone could shed some light on the following article about AT&T, Verizon and Vodafone tracking IDs:

http://www.propublica.org/article/somebodys-already-using-verizons-id-to-track-users

This infromation is quite concerning to me and I wanted to make sure my online identity remains private.

I assume that if I'm connected to Freedome's VPN these telecom tracking numbers are irrelevant to me. Am I right about this?

Regards,

ct

Hi,

 

Yes, Freedome protects you against those tracking attempts too. When you use Freedome, all your network traffic goes through your service provider's network in an encrypted "tunnel", all the way from your device to whatever Freedome virtual location you have chosen to use, and no-one is able to add any extra HTTP headers with those identifiers, or any cookies to that encrypted traffic.

 

Yours,

Tapio
