Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A bit of a pain to configure, but definitely worth it.

Great for those annoying trackers Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this for YEARS and every update has things added I didn't realize I needed. Love this app.

Excellent blocker, sometimes too good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Installed and used for several years on my Mac and PC. Works flawlessly for the most part. Sometimes, websites will not work unless paused but this is a minor inconvenience. Custom settings by user.

Not what it should be Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installed and tried it.

The pop-up message style was quite nice, but I found the privacy agreement for the add-on to be extremely unsatisfactory.

Also, the fact that to change my settings I had to actually access the Ghostery site over the Internet instead of doing it locally was a big minus.

Another big minus was that as default it allows first-party trackers AND allows Ghostery to send users messages concerning "Ghostery products". The fact that these can be turned off does not make this less of a minus for most users who may not even access the settings.

All in all I feel there are other similar add-ons with better features, better privacy settings and policies and the savvy and security-conscious user should (and will) choose them.

Excellent Product Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This product greatly reduces the crap that is invading the internet. It takes a bit of time to learn how to access the pages your want without accessing ALL of their tracking packages. Well worth giving the developers financial and social support!

Great Add On!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using Ghostery for years. I love to know about and block trackers. Ghostery does a great job of helping me with that.

Most awesome add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My internet experienced was totally hosed until I put Ghostery on.
Any negative reviews,, IMHO,, are either written by morons or a mole,, What we need is a really good mole trap,, :-)

Losing focus Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This extension used to be about blocking trackers; now, the first thing it does after installation is open a new tab that goes to a webpage to configure it (why not offline like before?), with Google Analytics, Google Fonts, and a "Cookie Consent". It gets harder and harder to configure as 99% of the users want with each revision, with dubious UI choices like removing the "select all" options.

It feels like a bait-and-switch for a long-time user like me. I cannot recommend it anymore.

Apart from that, it still works as advertised... I think...

Not a fan of the new UI (ver6 +). Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since the new V6 has come out I do not care for it or recommend it. If you are going to use I would recommend an older version of ghostery.

Helpful & Easy to Install Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks Ghostery for providing a quick and effective browser protection solution. I was looking for something to stop me being bombarded by irrelevant ads and pop-ups, without paying through the nose. You're it!

Notification Bubble Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seemed like an okay addon however the inability to disable the oversized icon in the bottom right of my mobile screen was a deal breaker. Noticing other people have this issue without resolution forced my had to uninstall. Might reconsider installing again should this issue be revolved.

Slowing the browsing experience a lot ! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The goal of Ghostery is really interesting, but the way it turns these last months is horrible: it is slowing my browsing experience on all my computers, even with a Core™ i5-4430 i can see a huge difference with and without ghostery !
I can't remember when it began, but for sure as soon as I uninstalled it today on all my devices, i rediscovered my Firefox !

Better usability than completely blocking cookies Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have a great deal of redundant security/anonymity plugins, and this one fits in nicely.
The categories available help to make quicker decisions (I, for instance, like to leave comment trackers enabled) and help me to not break so many sites.
For me, it's especially nice to see that it continues to block things that I enable in the more aggressive NoScript in order to make a site load.

Pretty Solid App Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This app works really well. I use it along with adblocker, and I hardly see ads and junk that everyone wants to throw my way. Being able to restrict a page is a great feature

Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Specially useful if you like your browser to request only what you need

Decent app Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like it fine enough and it usually doesn't break pages. I use it along with an ad blocker [currently ublockOrigin] and Disconnect. You have to remember that when a page isn't working right to temp-pause the blocking on this app and reload the page. A lot of folks can't seem to manage that.
