Interesting Chrome extension which aims to resist those recording our “digital tracks” by algorithmically browsing selected sites in a “pseudo-random” fashion and creating noise and confusion…
You are being tracked.
Whatever you do online, you leave digital tracks behind.
These digital footprints are used to market to you – and to influence your thinking and behavior.
On April 3, President Donald Trump signed a repeal of online privacy rules that would have limited the ability of ISPs to share or sell customers’ browsing history for advertising purposes.
Erasing these footprints – or not leaving them in the first place – is becoming more difficult, and less effective.
Hiding from data collection isn’t working.
Instead, we can make our collected data less actionable by leaving misleading tracks, camouflaging our true behavior.
We can resist being manipulated by making ourselves harder to analyze – both individually, and collectively.
We can take back the power of our data.
