The footprint we leave on the Internet is too long
Google and Facebook are the companies that track users, with an almost equal number of applications.
Kaspersky Internet warns that practiced forms “subtle” to obtain information about the sailors, which is known as tracking . Each time a user visits a web site , request a HTML to be added to your local browser. A code may include external references, so I also asked. The Russian company said that “today, there is nothing to fear, but the information is recorded about users have specific purposes that can be very binding in the future. The question is where is my privacy”.
One example is social networks. Even after closing the session, the browser continues to store data. Many think the solution is to delete the cookies , but it is not. There are other techniques that can be used to identify users based on the traces of your browser. According to a study by combining the browser of a computer, your installed extensions and basic information about your computer, 83% of users have a unique footprint.
Vicente Diaz, an analyst at Kaspersky , tried to surf the web from a popular Spanish newspaper. The result was that they asked 30 different domains, 15 of which were advertising or used to track the user, and created 10 cookies in the browser. In another experiment, browsing the 250 sites most popular in Spain, Diaz found that 20% of traffic is directed to sites web tracking and advertising, averaged 11.2 CONUN tracking requests per site and 93% external references to sites web crawl. Google and Facebook are the companies that track users, with an almost equal number of applications.
From Kaspersky, emphasize that we must pay attention to the defaults . Google Chrome and Safari have different default settings to allow cookies and external requests that are sent to visit a Web site . By going aa different pages with different browsers to capture traffic, there was little difference in the number of applications or the tracking number of domains that each browser request. But, yes there was a large difference in the cookies , since 1029 and Safari Chrome stores 269. Therefore, the results show that Chrome “is a bit more aggressive in tracking Safari.”
In the words of Diaz, it boils down to “a matter of money.” And is that “it is not advertising, it’s about creating a profile of users. Just imagine what can happen in the future when you ask a loan to your bank: you have a profile, no matter what you say, you will receive money only if the computer is that your profile matches the requirements. Perhaps in the near future, all companies could access these profiles, in which all our data available and the computer will decide our destiny, “explains the analyst of Kaspersky.
