Pinterest, much? Oh, please, let’s not feign the whole, ‘Pinterest? What is that? What is this pinterest you speak of?’

I’m on the internet a lot. I’m a bit of a conspiracy theorist, not much, but enough to know that, if not big brother, there are many others watching my actions on the internet. Yours, too. I’m not ok with this.

The program blocks those attempts. You can then click on the thought bubble and it will tell you which companies were blocked.

So who cares, right? Let them track you, right? Here’s a page that explains how these tracking companies make money off of YOU and your kids if they are online as well.


I feel like I’m sticking it to ‘the man’ when I see the program blocking companies. Like I have the upper hand.

Check it out, keep your privacy. You can thank me by sharing the link or this post so others can protect their privacy as well. So you know, this is NOT an affiliate link. I don’t get paid to promote this, I just think it’s worthwhile.
