Until I completely switch from Google, I have turned off Ad personalization.
I've considered this but what does it really do? Is it going to stop/reduce the absorbing of your data trail or just not use that wealth of data to provide "better" ads?
They still track, they just don't personalize ads for you. It's less 'terrifying' but in the end it's the same.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
