After installing Do Not Track Plus my anti-spyware program had to remove 49 tracking cookies that the program had installed on my computer. At first I thought these cookies must have come from some other source. So, I uninstalled DNTP and reinstalled it. Sure enough, the 49 cookies reappeared. I ask you, how is this an improvement? I would prefer to be tracked anonymously rather than have these targeted cookies on my machine. Adding insult to injury, I do not recall them asking for my permission to track me. That's why I installed the program in the first place! Needless to say I dumped this program. I think it's a fraud.

I read the reply 24 July 2012 reply from Abine regarding these cookies and remain unconvinced that they are harmless. They say that they come from "Network Advertising Initiative" and that Abine doesn't collect any personal data, etc. Perhaps they don't, but somebody else certainly does. This is like saying we left the window open for the burglar to come in, but if they steal anything it's not our doing. Nonsense.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1.611).
