5. turn on private browsing
Ever searched for a place to go on holiday, then go on Facebook and suddenly see ads for hotels in that area? These companies aren’t mind readers, but they are pushing targeted ads at you. They do this by gathering information on your interests based on your browsing history.
Every browser has an option under the Settings for private browsing, which opens up a new ‘private’ window that deletes any information on the sites you’ve visited after each session. Use it and keep your tracks covered; it isn’t perfect, but it’s a good start.
