Facebook and Google Track Your Porn Browsing Regardless of Incognito Mode

Watching porn online has become more than acceptable in our society these days. Unfortunately, it is also of great interest to companies such as Google, Facebook, and Oracle. New research confirms most of the porn sites out there contain trackers, which seem to bypass a browser’s incognito mode. One’s online habits tell a lot about the user in question, that much is certain.  Viewing Porn Will get you Tracked It should not come as too big of a surprise to learn some of the biggest technology companies in the world are actively tracking users in many different ways. Not only are they interested in one’s regular browsing behavior, but the Googles, Facebooks, and Oracles of this world also take note of when, where, and how often one watches porn online. Even when browsing in incognito mode, these companies will be able to track users accordingly, which is rather worrisome in its own regard. A new study conducted by Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pennsylvania confirms one’s worst fears. They analyzed over 22,000 porn sites on the internet through a tool known as webXray. This tool allows them to identify tracking tools which are used by third parties to harvest user information. As it turns out, over 90% of the researched websites contain such trackers, which is a rather worrisome statistic. At the same time, this should not come as a complete surprise, given the popularity of watching of porn online in 2019.  The researchers also confirm over 70% of the trackers found on analyzed pages belong to Google, with Oracle coming in at 24% and Facebook with another 10%. Especially that latter company will create a fair few heated debates, given Facebook’s history of mismanaging user information and private data. Most people wouldn’t necessarily expect Facebook to put trackers on porn websites either, yet that is exactly what is happening these days.  The bigger concern is how users can turn on incognito mode and still be tracked. That in itself causes a lot of problems, as the data trackers embedded on these porn websites seem to share relevant information with third parties regardless. How that is possible, remains a bit of a mystery as of right now. From a privacy point of view, no one wants to see their porn browsing habits tracked in the same way as their online shopping. Unfortunately for them, that is exactly what is happening in this day and age. Luckily, it would appear none of this information is used to build marketing profiles. A Google rep clearly stated they do not allow Google Ads on adult websites and prohibit personalized advertising profiles based on sexual interests. Facebook echoed this statement, albeit Oracle decided not to respond to these new findings in any way. That doesn’t necessarily mean they are using this data for marketing purposes, but it is something to keep in mind regardless. The bigger question is why this type of activity is even contemplated by these companies in this modern day and age. Especially given the scrutiny that most tech companies face regarding user privacy these days, one would expect them to take notice and step up their game in a positive manner. Unfortunately, it seems all of the scrutiny has triggered the opposite effect. A very problematic situation ensues, as this type of behavior should be punished by any means necessary.  Image(s): The post Facebook and Google Track Your Porn Browsing Regardless of Incognito Mode appeared first on NullTX.

Reminder: Bakkt is Launching Bitcoin Futures in the Coming Day

Bakkt is Finally Here That’s right, Bakkt is finally here. After months upon months of deliberation, hype, and odd regulatory setbacks, the cryptocurrency venture that has been backed by the New York Stock Exchange, Microsoft, and Starbucks is launching. Starting Monday, July 22nd, the exchange will be testing physically delivered Bitcoin futures, which will be one of the first product of its kind to be regulated in U.S. markets. It is currently unclear who will be testing the product, or in which way the contract and custody solution will be tested. But, this development marks a huge step in the right direction for the cryptocurrency market. Bakkt confirmed the launch date for its testing period at a recent summit that was held in the New York Stock Exchange, whose chief executive is wed to the head of Bakkt. Per first-hand recounts of those in attendance, the cryptocurrency startup has also confirmed that it will be fully launching its Bitcoin futures product by the end of Q3, should nothing go wrong during testing of course. A Catalyst for Bitcoin & Crypto Growth In a recent Fundstrat Global Advisors research note posted to Twitter, Sam Doctor of the market research firm explained his thoughts on the conference. Citing the buzz being emanated by the over 150 investors and institutions in attendance, Doctor argues that there is “institutional anticipation” for the exchange’s Bitcoin futures. He expounded: “As we have written before, Bakkt tackles many of the barriers to adoption for traditional investors seeking to expand their mandate to include crypto.” Doctor adds that “appears to be a critical mass of adopters ready to come on board on Day 1 of the Bakkt launch”, noting that the firm’s sales team is starting to ramp up discussions with everyone from brokers and market makers. He thus confirms that should the hype translate into actual investment, the long-expected launch of the Bitcoin product, which will give many institutions their first taste of so-called “physical” BTC, could be a “huge” catalyst for the growth of this already budding market. Institutions Are Buzzing Per Placeholder’s Chris Burniske, the venture capitalist author of industry primer “Crypto Asset”, the overall feel of the room was rather bullish. He wrote the following, making the case that Wall Street has its eye on the cryptocurrency space once again. All in all, the @Bakkt event signals great things for #bitcoin and #crypto at large, even if I did miss some of the funk of OG days.— Chris Burniske (@cburniske) July 18, 2019 Title Image Courtesy of Samson Creative Via Unsplash The post Reminder: Bakkt is Launching Bitcoin Futures in the Coming Day appeared first on Ethereum World News.
