- turn off off behaviourial advertising with one click

Found 17th Dec 2017
This is for your information and take action. As I was customising my Google privacy settings, a pop up message came up about a choice to turn off ads personalisation for 100+ other online ad networks as well as Google.

You can turn off behaviourial advertising as you browse on any device.

You will start to see web sites with this icon, an example below.

Please note:

If you choose to turn off online behavioural advertising you will
still see advertising on the internet. However, it does mean that the
advertising you see on websites may not be tailored to your likely
interests or preferences on the web browser you are currently using.
Using this tool only applies to online behavioural advertising and will
not affect other services that use the same technology, called cookies,
such as email, shopping basket preferences and photo hosting. Web sites
that you visit may also still collect information / use cookies for
other purposes.

I saw this a while ago , I just turn every thing I can find to off and they still manage to follow me lol.
Its just annoying that if I'm looking at shoes , they suddenly appear on another web site and you think to yourself .... there's a reason I moved on from looking at shoes , I don't want this extra pollution on the page I'm on.
What does it matter, do you really think it makes any difference to the data harvesting
What they said how is this any different from a 'normal' ad blocker ?

I think, though not sure definite, your ad blocker does the job. But you can try to check out the 111 or so networks, then it will report a listing of ones which are NOT blocked by your Ad Blocker, then you just click on the OFF button on any network that is not blocked as yet. So in my case, for one browser I have an Ad Blocker but about 5 were not blocked.
I used to be totally paranoid about it run five ad/spyware blockers not use social media at all....
at the end of the day by not engaging you are missing out
this place got me by the wallet in the end

The main thing people want your data for is to sell you stuff
Good luck....
