Simple Cyber Defense Online Shopping Episode 1 - Online Tracking: Interview with Avoid the Hack
This is the first episode of the Online Shopping Series. In this episode we will be interviewing Ashley Simmons from Avoid the Hack on the topic of online tracking. Some of the questions we will be answering are: • Why should I care about tracking? • Isn't the point of tracking is to make products work better and to have the ads that are shown to you be more relevant? • What are some common methods used for tracking? • How can individuals avoid being tracked online?
