The updated Mozilla’s Firefox version 67 available on June 4th update turned on Enhanced Tracking Protection for new installed users. The existing installed version of Firefox users may enable the ETP after updating.
Users will only notice Enhanced Tracking Protection in the URL bar with the small purple shield and the little “i” icons. Mozilla, the maker of open source browser Firefox, has started blocking third party website cookies that can let advertisers and publishers track users across the Internet. The company is blocking third-party cookies under a Firefox feature named Enhanced Tracking Protection, which was announced in 2018. When users see the shield icon, users should feel safe that Firefox is blocking thousands of companies from users’ online activity.
