13 Dec 79% of World’s Websites Track User Data
A recent study conducted by Ghostery revealed that around 79% of websites globally track their visitor’s data, while around 10% let third party companies have access to this data.
The anti-tracking tool company published a graph that showed which websites tracked the most data. It was shown that Google and Facebook collect the most data, while the US, Russia, and UK used more trackers than the global average. European countries such as Germany and France had fewer per page load.
It was also revealed that mainstream news websites such as The Washington Post actually use more ad tech vendors than adult websites, which significantly slow down their pages.
