Short: I’m a new user and want to say hello to everyone!
Long: I want to share some thoughts with the developers and users.
I was looking for a very long time for an efficient add blocker. The tracking at that time was not so persistent but I was still wondering why in Safari iOS 9 and (I think also iOS 10) I was not able to delete the Google and Facebook cookies. All cookies were gone when cleaning up the Safari history but those two were nailed in the iOS cookies repository…
So I found KA-Block which I use both in iOS and macOS Safari and is doing perfectly the job blocking adds but no tracking protection. Chapeau!
Some two years back I started to search for anti-tracking protection an after purchasing few apps I ended with FindX. The problem with all those antitracker is that a mediocre user as am I has no chance to evaluate how effective the app is. The app can show that is blocking XX tracking cookies BUT how many are passing through and remain undetected?
And then I discovered Panoptclick at Electronic Frontier Foundation https://panopticlick.eff.org. I tested the FindX iOS app efficiency and the result was satisfactory. Surprising was the fact that the macOS version showed different results, providing just partial protection. No idea what’s going on and continued the search and found Better.
According to Panoptclick the Better for macOS is fully protecting the Safari user (but is the metering really reliable?) In any case some protection is still better as no protection at all! At the moment I didn’t purchased the Better iOS version, lets see what the future brings.
In attachement you can see the Panoptclick results comparing the FindX and Bettre Safari macOS versions.
