Here I thought I was safe disabling cookies\ \ On-line tracking is evolving , now companies can track you internet habits without cookies across all the devices you use to compile ever complex user profiles for adverts. \ \ Here is the dream\ \ “So if someone regularly checks a news app on a phone in bed each morning, browses the same news site from a laptop in the kitchen, visits from that laptop at an office an hour later and returns that night on a tablet in the same home, Drawbridge concludes that those devices belong to the same person. And if that person shopped for airplane tickets at work, Drawbridge could show that person an airline ad on the tablet that evening.”
