    Years ago when I had windows 98se, I had a program that I paid $120.00 for a year for, and renewal for subsequent yearly subscriptions were like about sixty bucks, but, it had it's drawbacks, it actually slowed down the OS, which I had to put up with. But, it was definitely a very good program, it blocked and stopped most if not all unwanted tracking.

    I just wonder if programs like that are available for people who use the latest phones?

    I know of some pc programs that stop tracking data, but those cost quite a bit, and they take up some space too.

    I think that was the problem with my old 98se OS, the anti tracking program took up too much space which hindered operating performance. I think it affected my old pc so much that some programs I had on it, were slow to open and to use.

    Okay this is creepy, imo. However if the part of the article below is accurate, you should be able to simply clear your cookies after a session at Verizon and be safe. Additionally, may I again recommend NoScript and learn how to use.



    One other option that comes to mind is a Firefox private window wherein it won't keep any cookies or cache from the sites you visit while in private window mode, or so it says.
    Verizon has always had an opt-out option.

    Do you use Gmail, google search and other items. They are far worse than Verizon.

    Clearing cookies does very little when all the info is saved in the .dat file (as it applies to PC's a few mentioned).
