Ghostery Reviews

about Ghostery · · Helpful Not helpful 4 Helpful Report as spam

Ghostery is spyware, don't use it, Ghostery is managed by a marketing company that sells your personal data to large companies, use reliable extensions such as uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger instead, always use open-source applications, which do not require you to create an account or pay a premium version to access all of it.

Ghostery is recommended by Firefox but be careful, the recommendations by Firefox are not always accurate, do your own research and remain critical, for every application, extensions, look first at the negative comments before the positive comments, because if there are negative comments, maybe it is a rare case or due to some other problem, but there is often a good reason.

The software is very good, but it only blocks official advertising and no advertising integrated via websites. to have only a subscription model and no lifetime model like other providers I would rather pay once than pay every month / year.

Good:

  1. Boost net browsing experience
  2. Initial configuration is easy

Bad:

  1. Super resource intensive, sometimes slow the browser which hinders what it offers to counter

The functionality is great, but last modifications to UI make the app resources-intensive and not so usable.

Complete control over not just ads but all annoying scripts

I love this extension how I can select exactly what to block and what not to block, and it alerts me of all the different things on each site, I finally feel as if I have regained control of my web browsing experience - without all the pesky clutter I don't want, and informed about it all.

Ghostery does a great job of deflecting trackers. I always install Ghostery alongside AdBlock Plus whenever I transition to a new browser or machine.
