Firefox update stops Facebook from stalking you — here’s how

2 min read

Mozilla’s latest Firefox update comes with a new privacy feature that will block sites like Facebook from tracking you as you cruise the internet. Mozilla’s Firefox 102 strips specific criteria from URLs that can be used to follow you as you journey through your daily web browsing. 

Facebook is the most well-known culprit, but several other well-known internet stalkers like HubSpot, Marketo, and Olytics use custom-designed URL query criteria to track links you click on to keep an eye on your activities and interests. It’s invasive, and most do not realize these URL queries are stalking them. I tend to always use a VPN from our list of best VPN services, but I am considering downloading Firefox to take advantage of this new privacy feature.
