Mozilla announces a new cookie restricting feature called ‘Total Cookie Protection’ for its Firefox users.
Mozilla is known for its privacy protections that why they’ve announced the rolling out of this new cookie restricting feature on their browser. The objective of ‘Total Cookie Protection’ is to enhance the protection of users against online trackers by limiting their ability to read cookies from different websites and 3rd party services.
The result of the new feature is putting cookies in their respective ‘Cookie Jar’, meaning that each cookie from a website to a user’s browser, it’ll only be confined to that specific website, hence other tracking apps won’t have access to it.
Trackers will only see a user’s behavior on a single website and won’t be able to track a user’s behavior from different websites and link it together. With this update, it’ll lessen those annoying ads and restrict data gathering from people.
