Last night, I got an email from Deren Baker, Jumpshot's CEO, informing me that the business would be winding down at the behest of their parent company,
They (Google, Avast, etc) track you to defend you against terrorists and other bad actors like bandits, villains... So tracking is good for me and for you.
Better to fight for better security than for privacy.
Fighting for privacy is a war lost in advance.
I no longer use privacy extensions like Privacy Possum, Ghostery, and my browsers are lighter.
I've already said that...
According to @Andy Ful explanation elsewhere in this forum this is not the case (anymore):WD scan the same files over and over in real-time, result is the latency when you open a folder full of files creating a serious impact on the system responsiveness. Caching is a mechanism that discard previously scanned files and prioritize only the new ones, result is fastest scans and better responsiveness of the system. This what WD lacks at the moment.
Thanks to mention it, I probably overlooked, will implement them then.Windows Defender has a setting in Group Policy to scan files only whan they are written (disable on open scan) or read (disable on file close scan). When either of settings is enabled, the cache survives reboot.
With Google search and analytics it is only possible to analyse the visitors you get on your website (and Google teases companies with impressions and click through rates to showwhat traffic and customers companies possibly miss to stimulate companies to spend more on advertising). With the data of Avast, it is possible to find new customer groups who share the same interest and habits, because you can analyse what they browsed and looked for before they landed on your website.Why Pepsi wants my browsing data?
It seems that Anti-Track wasn't up to what it claimed to do, or, maybe it wasn't what it said it was all along. Keeping track of fake fake fake news gets harder all the time.What is really odd is that the same company produces "Avast AntiTrack" and what not.
+ has Blog posts talkinga bout "Privacy". Joke!
Too bad Avast has lost its cause... It used to be a great software!
Don't expect too much, MS is a company with multiple departments ignoring what the others are doing LOL.
I was told that the Avast CEO has completely changed, especially after the AVG acquisition... his nose is now in the sky...What's really said when Avast first hit the web they were young and new and a decent organaization serving the public............the almighty dollar corrupted their way of life and how they deal with the public and customers.
Don't know about his breath, but I'm sure his sleep was affected... he terminated jumpshot very quickly... it won't be long however before they find another dirty monetisation practice.HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM I hope he can breathed the high up
