By default, the Tracker Manager is turned on and will block all trackers. You’ll receive notifications on how many trackers a site has (you can turn these notifications off if you’d like). You can view tracker details, and block or unblock trackers across all sites or for individual sites through the Tracker Panel or the Pocket Geek Privacy Toolbar.
Some media sites will ask you to allow trackers to view their free content, which is fair if you think about it, as they use the advertising revenue they generate by serving you ads to keep providing you free content. You don’t have to unblock everything though. If you’d like, you can play with the settings in the Track Panel and individually block tracker categories or individual trackers. For example, you may start with allowing the advertising trackers and block the analytics and other trackers. Open the Tracker Panel to toggle trackers on and off.
By Default, tracker management is turned off. To turn it on, go to the Tracker Manager tab and toggle the Tracker Filter setting to On. Android does not support individual blocking of trackers by site, category, or tracker. It is either on or off.
That’s it. Tracker management is a passive tool running in the background to protect your privacy, it is always working for you.
With Pocket Geek Privacy v1.34, iOS devices now have a Tracker Manager add-on as well. The technical limitations are different depending on the devices and operating systems, so, on Apple devices, the Tracker Manager is only able to block advertising trackers and only while browsing on Safari. You will find the option directly in the Settings of the app: one toggle to switch and your browsing experience will be significantly enhanced.
