Firefox Social Tracking Protection: What Is It?

Η νέα σταθερή του Firefox (70) φέρνει ένα νέο χαρακτηριστικό ασφαλείας. Ονομάζεται Social Tracking Protection. Ας δούμε πως μπορεί να βοηθήσει:

It's no secret that our social networks are tracking and collecting as much of us as possible. The goal, of course, is profit.
What the average internet user may not know is that social networks can follow us even when we are not using them. To do this, they use trackers built into other sites. This is how they can keep track of our browser habits even if we are not logged in or subscribed to social networks. Social Tracking Protection

Tracking bans have long been present in modern browsers, and Firefox has different tools to protect you from this behavior on social networks.

The latest version of the browser released by Mozilla is and one of the highlights it contains is Social Tracking Protection (available in Enhanced Tracking Protection).

Social Tracking Protection refers to the tracking we find on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. These networks distribute tracking cookies so they can track us between the sites we visit. The new Social Tracking Protection feature is an arsenal of Firefox location tracking tools and will help improve our privacy while browsing the web.

What you need to know is that Social Tracking Protection is enabled by default in Firefox on all platforms, so you don't need extra settings for your protection.

Mozilla reports:

Firefox blocks the most common trackers from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

The default browser setting offers a good balance of protection and performance. You will not face while browsing the web.

On the other hand, if you use the strict level of blocking, many more trackers may be blocked, but there is a risk that pages will not load properly.

Mozilla also states that despite Firefox monitoring social media protection, there is a possibility that some monitoring may occur and there is nothing you can do about it.

"Social companies will still be able to collect data about you if you use their services to connect to other sites (with your Facebook or Twitter account)."
