How And Why You Are Tracked Online

privacyWe are excited to see a number of people from the technical community sharing their knowledge and ideas! This week we are featuring a blog post from InfoTECH!

We recently wrote an article about Browser Privacy Modes and mentioned that those modes were not able to stop certain other services from tracking your activities online, such as your ISP, plugins, and certain special cookies. We felt it was important to cover how and why we are all tracked across the Internet. The results are probably not surprising to most of our readers.

This post is not intended to be all-inclusive, nor exhaustive in explanation. Let’s dive in:


This form of tracking often shows a site owner how many people visit their site over a period of time, how a visitor arrived at their site, general geographical location of visitors, the company identification (network identification) of a visitor, and other technical details like the browser and operating system used by visitors. This helps most websites craft better content or show ads that are more relevant to their visitors, which brings us to our next point.

Keep Your Office VIRUS FREE with Help from Your Team!

Everyday email decisions can play a huge role in determining whether or not viruses break your office email barriers. While SPAM filters do a great job of blocking most problems, viruses can occasionally slip through, and YOU become the last line of defense!

Here are some simple and great tips for you to implement when checking emails daily:

  1. Email with INVOICE in the header, coming from an unknown sender.SPAM-email-virus-filter
  2. Any email with any attachment other than pdf, especially .zip!
  3. Any email telling you that you have a security issue with an account, and to click a link to investigate. Never click links imbedded into these types of messages. Use your web browser to navigate separately to the company’s website and login.
  4. Any unsolicited email from an unknown sender should always be treated with suspicion.
  5. Any file attachments should first be downloaded to your computer before opening, as long as they don’t violate any of the above rules. This way, your computer’s local Anti-Virus app can scan the file as soon as it hits the drive.
  6. Finally, if you’re unsure of an email you’ve received, forward it to the helpdesk and we’ll check it out.
