The Solid Podcast: Season 3 Episode 2 - Protect Yo Net!

February 5, 2020

Welcome to The Solid Podcast: Season 3 Episode 2. In the last episode we covered how the big tech companies use cookies, trackers and browser fingerprinting to follow your web surfing. They then use that information to target advertising directly to you and your "framily" (friends & family). In this follow up episode I teach you several ways to block these trackers or control them to your liking. After listening to this episode you will be able to safely put the tinfoil snap backs away and bust out your New Era's signature 59FIFTY with your favorite team on it.

🔴 Side benefit of listening is you’ll look better. Here is how to "Protect Yo Net!"
