Optout of tracker based ads. I found this in my isp privacy policy but it should work for anyone. Note: You have to use this for every browser you use.

Just install ublock origin. Anything that involves installing something or even contacting them is giving them data on you that they collect since that is their purpose.

And if you're a Win10 guy, lock down with something like Blackbird.

And if you're on a phone? Like me?

Firefox+Ublock Origin. The phone platform is always owned by someone though.

I never understood this. If I want them to stop tracking me I have to keep cookies in my browser so they can tell that I don't want to be tracked. Of course these cookies also track me, and beyond that all I have is their promise that they won't track me. And corporate promises are worth exactly nothing.

My solution is uBlock Origin plus a browser that deletes everything when I shut it down. They can track me all they want but it won't do them any good.

plus a browser that deletes everything when I shut it down

This is an excellent point and something I do also. By deleting "everything" it's deleting the key part - cookies. Don't need cookies when you essentially have a static IP though.

If I understand correctly (please correct me if I'm wrong) these track your history then put up ads realitive to your history. If you opt out they won't track your history and the ads you see wont be specific to your browsing history.

Please explain.

I believe he's just screwing with you. Block all the ads and make it a non-issue.

Along with ublock I have a raspberry pi running a program called notrack. Its a replacement DNS. It sends a blank 1x1 pixel image to those server that track you. You have to set your ip4 DNS to point to the pi's IP.
