Protect your privacy. See who’s tracking your web browsing with Ghostery.

DETECT

Ghostery sees the “invisible” web, detecting trackers, web bugs, pixels, and beacons placed on web pages by Facebook, Google, and thousands of other companies interested in your activity.

LEARN

After showing you who operates behind the scenes, Ghostery also gives you the opportunity to learn more about each company it identifies, including links to their privacy policy and opt-out options.

CONTROL

Ghostery allows you to block scripts, images, objects and framed documents from companies that you don’t trust.

COLLABORATE

Ghostery also includes the optional, opt-in feature called Ghostrank, which sends Ghostery servers anonymous information about the trackers you encounter and where you encounter them. This allows us to create a more comprehensive list of detectable items, and helps us create a more transparent behavioral advertising ecosystem.

PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY

Ghostery is built and maintained for users that care about their online privacy, and is engineered with privacy as a primary goal. Ghostery use is anonymous. No registrations or sign-ups are required. The Ghostery plug-in does not place cookies into your browser. Besides a single, non-identified ping on install and upgrade, Ghostery never receives any data from users unless they’ve chosen to participate in Ghostrank. Ghostrank data itself is anonymous, is NEVER used for advertising targeting purposes, and is only shared in aggregated, non-personal, statistical form.

For more information, check out Ghostery’s privacy policy. To learn more about Ghostrank data and its use, check out our FAQ.

Ghostery’s source code is straight-forward – for some hands-on privacy management goodness, look inside! You’ll find that Ghostery works just like we describe.
