What is AntiTracker?
AntiTracker is a new IVPN feature that enables you to block trackers that collect various information about your browser activity (e.g. Google Analytics), known malicious websites and ads. This, on par with encryption IVPN provides, significantly increases your online privacy.
How does it work?
The AntiTracker feature uses a specially configured DNS server to block domains from the publicly curated and continuously expanded GitHub project blacklist
How can I activate the AntiTracker?
On desktop apps for macOS and Windows, the feature is enabled by toggling the AntiTracker switch on which is located right next to the IVPN Firewall switch.
Which VPN protocols does it work with?
AntiTracker is configured to work across all OpenVPN and WireGuard servers.
Can I use it together with my browser’s ads/tracking-blocking extension?
Yes. Do keep in mind though, when using other tracker-blocking extensions, i.e. Privacy badger or Ghostery, along with our AntiTracker you might see that webpage still loads and contains various trackers. This happens because the AntiTracker is not purging these trackers from the webpage but rather prevents them from relaying any gathered data in your browser, thus mitigating a leak.
On which devices I can use AntiTracker?
AntiTracker is available across all our native apps for Windows, macOS, iOS and Android.
What is “Hardcore Mode”?
Hardcore Mode extends the AntiTracker feature further by completely blocking all domains and services of the flagship bearers of the surveillance economy, such as Google and Facebook.
