Alternatives to Ghostery for Safari with any license

  • uBlock Origin

    Popular and efficient blocker for Chromium, Chrome, Edge, Firefox (desktop and Android), Opera, Safari, Thunderbird. Fast and lean.

    • Not a tracker blocker. uBlock Origin may be a great ad blocker, but it does nothing to block trackers. ericwatersApr 2019 • 0 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • After Ghostery's new update they no longer allow you to individually block ads or social media trackers. It's now an all or nothing selection. Not liking this. Guest • Apr 2018 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Ghostery has its own problems selling data to advertisers. Disconect and uBlock Origin is better. Guest • Apr 2017 • 8 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Ghostery is proprietary, the last update does not block all trackers Guest • Mar 2017 • 4 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The emphasis of one is blocking ads , the other is blocking trackers. There maybe some overlap but you will not get both functions from either program. Guest • Oct 2015 • 17 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Adblock Plus is about blocking ads. Ghostery is about blocking trackers. They're complementary. One is not a substitute for the other. Guest • Dec 2017 • 7 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • ABP still let some "user friendly" ads unlike uBlock Origin, but both do not block trackers unlike ghostery... but ghostery sell your data OzakIJan 2018 • 3 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Ghostery drastically hurts the performance of Firefox on my system. Disconnect seems to improve performance. Guest • Mar 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Ditch "free" Ghostery, which sells your browsing data if you don't opt out of GhostRank during setup. Instead, go for these open source alternatives: PrivacyBadger (EFF supported, open source tracker blocker), Disconnect (open source tracker blocker) and uBlock Origin (open source ad blocker).
