Anti-Tracking v Deletion of Tracking Cookies
Posted: 28-Nov-2021 | 7:32AM · 5 Replies · Permalink
Can someone please explain to me.... Why do I need Norton Anti-Track if Norton 360 is supposed to delete Tracking Cookies automatically?
I have just had a pop-up from Norton to say that I have over 100 trackers on my system and that I need to further subscribe to have these removed!
Is Norton shifting goalposts and removing software from the original package to create so-called new additional parameters to their 360 which was meant to cover EVERYTHING - ie 360degrees !!!
