Abine Releases TACO 4.0
Abine Serves Up T.A.C.O. 4 to Disconnect You From Targeted Advertising & Profiling Online: Gives Privacy Control Back To Consumers
Cambridge, MA â€“ June 28th, 2011 Abine, Inc., The Online Privacy Company, announced the availability of its Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-out (TACO) version 4. TACO 4 represents the most comprehensive solution offered to date to control how web sites track you and stop them from building a detailed profile of you based on the history of your online behavior.
Fact: In 2011, the average web site you visit sends 53 hidden messages out to sites other than the one youâ€™re visiting; 70% of these are being sent to ad networks whose business is to collect, share, and sell your browsing habits: what you read, what you search for, and what you buy.
Solution? Put a stop to being profiled by adding TACO 4 to your browser:
- Protects you against over 120 of the most powerful and far-reaching behavioral advertising networks and companies specializing in collecting your personal data
- Blocks over 150 data-collecting companies who track and share your browsing habits and history across thousands of sites
- 700% faster display times to instantly show how the web sites youâ€™re visiting track you
- Handy on-off toggle to easily delete tracking cookies (including Adobe Flash cookies)
- User interface refined by over 10,000 community suggestions
- More practical ways to protect your online privacy and to squash identity theft
"We continue to innovate to give you control back over your online privacy," said Bill Kerrigan, Abine president and CEO. "Today more than ever before, everyone can benefit from having control over their online privacy â€“ in fact, thatâ€™s our mission at the online privacy company. Choosing how much of your personal info is stored online is now critical in a world where Google's tracking and search personalization, Facebookâ€™s facial recognition, Appleâ€™s iPhone location settings, and thousands of high tech ad networks continue to monitor, collect, and share far more info about our personal lives than is necessary."
