Re: tracking cookies

Options

Why does Bitdefender not recognize and remove tracking cookies. Presently I have to use a separate program (Super Spyware) to do that, and it always finds those tracking cookies so I can remove them.

    Tracking cookies are usually not harmful in 98% cases. They are basically used for marketing & advertising purposes. There are hardly any signatures created by any of the antimalware vendors against them. To prevent tracking cookies you should install browser extension to limit them.

    You can install bitdefender anti tracker extension on your browser to protect yourself from tracking : https://www.bitdefender.com/consumer/support/answer/28481/

    Additionally you can also install ghostery extension for excellent tracking protection : https://www.ghostery.com/ghostery-browser-extension/

    If both extensions are combined you will receive an excellent tracking protection from cookies.
