The thing is – those ads pay my salary, as well as the other full time editors, professionals writers, and dedicated server costs that make Make Use Of what it is.
We believe strongly in a free content model – whereby we provide free, high quality, full content to you with no restrictions – in exchange for showing you advertising.
Trouble is, a lot of people without technical knowledge on the subject believe those scare tactics.
So how much can these companies actually “track” your web usage?
Well for one, they certainly aren’t able to see what you’re doing in other tabs, other windows, or general Internet searching.
And just for the record, we won’t be locking you out of the site if you decide to not support us by removing ads.
We may show a little message asking you not to do it, but we will never lock you out. Feel free to vent your frustrations in the comments.
