Where are you actually connecting when you visit a website? Ads and tracking can come from anywhere. You may be sending personal information to some country where different laws apply or there are no laws at all. And, you have no control. Ad-Attack clearly identifies the country or origin for servers you access.
Ad-Attack also gives you the option to block everything located in countries you choose.
Ad-Attack automatically updates its blocklists on a pre-defined schedule. We do this very efficiently so you never notice it is happening.
We update our lists in 2 ways. The "big" list is updated on a regular schedule depending on the version you are using. A "delta" list is updated much more frequently. It is very compact and only contains the changes since the last big list update.
Tracking code is everywhere on virtually every website. There are dozens if not hundreds of companies that want to know where you visit and what you look at.
Visit any blog, news, sports or entertainment site, and the odds are that you will be tracked by 20 different companies (or more). This is big business and websites make money by selling your browsing data.
Up until now you have had no say in the matter. Now you do!
Your data is aggregated with data collected from other sites you visit to build a profile about you that they can sell to advertisers, banks, insurance companies or anyone interested in knowing more about you.
From your profile, they can determine your family, friends, hobbies, finances, health issues, sports activities, political and religious affiliations, just about anything. If you visit the "wrong" types of websites, they may even delete your social media accounts. They are doing this already.
This isn't hype and every indication is that it is going to get worse.
