TrackMeNot Description

TrackMeNot - Protect web searchers from surveillance by the used search engines.

Protect web searchers from surveillance by the used search engines.

TrackMeNot is a lightweight browser extension that helps protect web searchers from surveillance and data-profiling by search engines. It does so not by means of concealment or encryption (i.e. covering one's tracks), but instead, paradoxically, by the opposite strategy: noise and obfuscation.

With TrackMeNot, actual web searches, lost in a cloud of false leads, are essentially hidden in plain view. User-installed TrackMeNot works with the Firefox Browser and popular search engines (AOL, Yahoo!, Google, and MSN) and requires no 3rd-party servers or services.

How It Works
TrackMeNot runs in Firefox as a low-priority background process that periodically issues randomized search-queries to popular search engines, e.g., AOL, Yahoo!, Google, and MSN. TrackMeNot will hide users' actual search trails in a cloud of 'ghost' queries, significantly increasing the difficulty of aggregating such data into accurate or identifying user profiles.

As of version 0.4.x, TMN's static word list has been replaced with a dynamic query mechanism which 'evolves' each client (uniquely) over time, parsing the results of its searches for 'logical' future query terms with which to replace those already used.

Requirements:

- Firefox 1.5 - 5.*
- SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1a1pre

TrackMeNot 0.7.82 is licensed as Freeware for the Windows operating system / platform. TrackMeNot is provided as a free download for all software users (Freeware).
