Right now you are tends to frequently interfere with cookie-pop-up frequencies. The question is always the same: “Do you accept cookies from this page?” You may just click yes and don’t think twice about navigating through labyrinthian machines that are in the unknown menus.
But it does not have to be this way. While we can’t blame you for not wanting to sign into the permissions of any web site, there are some things you can do to keep websites from tracking you and removing the results.
The explosion of cookie-friendly protests began in 2018 and is probably a problem for All Security Laws. These changes were made to enable people to understand and improve the way they look online. Instead, it has made the internet unusable.
The way many websites have used cookie information has not helped. Black colors entice people to change yes, while other pages are available ignoring people’s choices completely. And many websites rely on other people to provide their cookie expertise. The next? Confusion. Your preferences controls in cookies are grouped into certain categories such as “machine tools” and “functionality.” And to make matters worse, data protection authorities did nothing create a good environment.
“Cookie banners are a joke,” says Sergio Maldonado, author and CEO of the software company PrivacyCloud. “Instead of helping people secure their future choices, the permissiveness of cookies is very annoying and often goes against the use of mobile phones, which makes the lives of people with disabilities more difficult.”
So what can we do? Aside from insisting on major changes – following rules, compiling information, and rethinking how online compliance works – there are a number of things you can do to help yourself. Here are some suggestions to consider.
Reject All Cookie Notifications
Midas Nouwens has been monitoring cookie pop-ups for years. Digital rights activists want to point out data protection agents that cookie information does not work. But the editors haven’t done much about them, so at the end of 2019 Nouwens and colleagues at Aarhus University in Denmark released Consent-O-Matic. It is a non-browser add-on (Chrome, Firefox, GitHub) which simply fills your preferences when you release cookies.
“It gives legitimate consent to this page, so you can be sure (though not 100%) that the answer you promised is followed,” says Nouwens. When cookie preferences are sent to your site by Consent-O-Matic, notifications are simply displayed in your browser to let you know that the system has worked. “Ideally we don’t pick up any kind of equipment,” adds Nouwens.
Maldonado Privacy has set up an open source platform like this: Consent Manager (Chrome, Firefox, GitHub). The machine automatically reduces all cookies and can display flags if the site does not respect your choices. “The tool detects the appearance of multiple cookies and removes them,” says Maldonado. NinjaCookie it also does the same by rejecting cookies at random. While not open and has the first component, there are extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, and Opera. Both PrivacyCloud and NinjaCookie claim that they do not collect data on your behavior.
The most popular closure is ‘I don’t care about cookies, ‘which has been around since 2012. More than 500,000 people use it on Chrome, but it does not protect your privacy as described above. The goal is simply to erase what has happened and often block or hide pop-ups, says producer Daniel Kladnik. “They do everything possible to remove cookie-related software, assuming that users protect themselves by using other tools, add-ons, and browsers,” Kladnik says.
Third cookies are killed. Apple and Firefox have killed a lot of tracking technology in their browsers, and when Google removes them from Chrome next year they’ll be almost old-fashioned. This does not mean that there is no need to take action against websites used in the current browser.
