Stress-free surfing | c’t uplink 38.5


The weekly c’t podcast c’t uplink is available …

Do you want to accept all cookies? Or do you prefer to cumbersome through the settings to protect your privacy? When visiting websites today you can hardly get past so-called consent or cookie banners. These digital bouncers are supposed to protect internet surfers so that website operators cannot do what they want with their data. But most of them just get on their nerves.

c’t editors Jo Bager and Ronald Eikenberg explain what internet biscuits are all about and what different types there are. Above all, it is about blocking cookies in the browser and switching off other annoying things such as tracking and advertising. Using the example of Firefox, Ronald shows which settings are necessary in order to only display the essentials on a website, namely the content.

He also subjected seven browsers to a privacy check and told us which browser calls home and which one your data is safe with. Finally, Jo takes a look into the future of tracking and explains what Google has to do with it.

Also there: Ronald Eikenberg, Jo Bager, Kim Sartorius
