Protect your privacy. See who's tracking your web browsing with Ghostery.
Ghostery sees the "invisible" web, detecting trackers, web bugs, pixels, and beacons placed on web pages by Facebook, Google, and over 500 other ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers - all companies interested in your activity.
Ghostery allows you to block scripts, images, objects and framed documents from companies that you don't trust.
Ghostery also includes the optional, opt-in feature called Ghostrank, which sends Ghostery servers anonymous information about the trackers you encounter and where you encounter them. This allows us to create a more comprehensive list of detectable items, and helps us create a more transparent behavioral advertising ecosystem.
PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY
Ghostery is built and maintained for users that care about their online privacy, and is engineered with privacy as a primary goal. Ghostery use is anonymous. No registrations or sign-ups are required. The Ghostery plug-in does not place cookies into your browser. Ghostery never receives any data from Ghostery users unless the user opts-in to participate in Ghostrank. Ghostrank data itself is anonymous, is NEVER used for advertising targeting purposes, and is only shared in aggregated, non-personal, statistical form.
Ghostery's source code is straight-forward - for some hands-on privacy management goodness, look inside! You'll find that Ghostery works just like we describe.

What's New in Version 1.4.6
- iPad crashing when using top navigation buttons
- WiFi connection protection state display issues
- UI Layout issues on landscape mode
faster than Safari, in north Idaho woods w/ iPad
I tried Ghostery out of desperation, as I have very few, and very slow, internet access options. To my surprise, sites that basically never load at all in Safari (e.g., Washington Monthly) work just fine in Ghostery. The private browsing is nice, too, but really it's just extra. The main thing is access out here.
However, the update is not an improvement as there is a strip about 2" wide on the right side that is always blank; all text and graphics are squeezed to the left and the font is so small it's almost unreadable.
If you're the kind of person that likes to have total control over every aspect of your life... Then has Ghostery got an app for you. You can secure almost any wifi network, search with no records kept, block the hundreds of companies that track you without your knowledge, and remain truly anonymous online. 5 Stars all the way, absolutely love it! Other apps don't compare. Let's take our privacy back.
Great app that could use some tweaks
I enjoy this app quite a bit. The tracker blocker is awesome and it certainly adds a sense of security to my browsing. The UI is a bit clunky, especially when compared to big name browsers. There are also some odd bugs, like the fact that I have to scroll and quickly "catch" the address bar before it disappears unless I'm at the very top of the page. Otherwise, great app. I use it for about 90% of my mobile browsing.
