Top 50 websites install average of 64 trackers on your computer

Do Not Track is a signal that users can set in their browsers to tell websites they don’t want their online web browsing tracked by companies with whom they have no relationship. Momentum for Do Not Track has been building over several years, inspired in part by high-profile privacy scandals as well as a comprehensive expose series by the Wall Street Journal showing that the nation’s 50 top websites on average installed 64 pieces of tracking technology onto the computers of visitors, usually with no warning. Do Not Track has beenendorsed by the FTC and is the cornerstone of legislation proposed by Senator Rockefeller.
