What are Trackers?
We live in a connected world. When you browse the web, your data leaves a digital footprint that is connected by tracking technologies that help companies build a profile about you. By serving you targeted advertisements, companies can analyze ad and site performance and connect you to site functionality like comments and social media. This profile details how you interact with their sites and those of their competitors, allowing them to optimize communications and site experience to reach you - and others like you - at the right place, at the right time.

Simplified and Improved Blocking UI (Ghostery Extension)
The blocking UI/UX in previous versions of the extension was, to put it bluntly, very confusing. Too much information was hidden by default and it took users too many clicks to get the information they wanted about the trackers they wanted to investigate. There were also too many rules and override states for the blocking logic itself, which further complicated the user’s experience. In 6.3.0, we simplified the blocking options interface by restoring a more traditional list view - though one that retains the categories - and made global blocking an easier two-choice check/uncheck interaction. Local blocking and unblocking remains in the product as “Trust on this site” and “Restrict on this site” tracker options, language that better parallels the establish site-level trust and restrict actions. We’ve also made these options only visible when a user hovers on the blocking options to help keep the UI simpler and less cluttered.
