Realize this is a naive question, but I am pretty computer illiterate (too old).
Certain programs obviously spy on me and send information about me to whoever it is that buys that. Examples:
- I search for “baby carriage” on amazon, and promptly get advertisements for baby carriages on websites that have ads. Obvious.
- I type “baby carriage” in an Email using a gmail.com account, and promptly get advertisements for baby carriages on websites that have ads. OK so google is evil, I get it now.
Is there any way to turn this off or at least minimize it (aside from not using gmail, google, amazon, etc.)?
