    Default AVG Releases Do-Not-Track



    If the recent debates around the Federal Trade Commission's call for a Do-Not-Track tool have you concerned about online privacy, computer security firm AVG recently announced a new do-not-track feature for Windows. AVG's new tool is available to users of its free and paid security products as a free update. New users can get the tool by downloading AVG Anti-virus Free Edition, and then running a program update to get the new do-not-track feature. The new tool works as an add-on with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers.
    What AVG Do-Not-Track Does

    AVG's do-not-track feature actively seeks out tracking cookies on your browser and alerts you when a site attempts to set a tracking mechanism. When it finds a tracking cookie, the anti-tracking feature will tell you whether it's a tracking cookie from an ad network, a "social button" such as Facebook's Like button and Google's +1, or a Web analytics cookie.

    neat. i think 'super anti spyware' does something like this also. with mozilla, i always keep the "tell websites i don't want to be tracked" option in tools/privacy checked, but i'm not sure how, or how well, it works. i do notice my bank and cc logins tag me above and beyond the cookies stamped with their names, and if i do allow removal of those odd labeled cookies, i have to renter my login data, along with my 'secrete' questions and the like. i'll have to try this.
