Jamie's Notes

Blacklight

Feed Blacklight with a website and it’ll scan it and tell you what tracking technologies are being used.

I scanned a handful of the websites that I visit daily. One site had 16 trackers in operation and placed 30 third-party cookies! Almost all of them told Facebook and Google of my visit.

I was surprised to see that Google is setting third-party cookies via my site – probably as a result of me embedding Youtube videos.
