After reading this article a quick trip to your privacy settings will be a must as it explains the necessary steps to remedy this invasion of data miners and their partners who track your every mouse click. Some simple browser adjustments can go a long way toward putting a fast stop to this around the clock monitoring of your activities as you browse the web.

 For the most popular web browsers follow the directions below...

 Firefox: Firefox> Tools> Options> Privacy> click the box that says, "Tell websites I do not want to be tracked." Then you should set it to "never save your history" and remove cookies frequently.

Chrome: Chrome> Preferences> Settings> Advanced Settings> Privacy> Content Settings> Click, "Block Third Party Cookies and Site Data."

Safari: Safari> Preferences> Security> Accept Cookies> select "never." You might also want to consider browsing privately so your history and passwords are not stored, and thus accessible.

Internet Explorer 10: Microsoft's latest version of Internet Explorer 10 will default to a "Do Not Track" position. The browser will send a signal to advertisers altering them that users do not want to be tracked.
