Not here. All cookies and history deleted when the browser closes, except for what I choose to remain. It's not (yet) as tight as I want it to be, but getting there.

Besides, wifey never gets on the PC. *lol*

No matter what search engine you use, they track where you go, even the ones that claim not to.

When I built my shop 5-6 years ago one of the first things to go in was a PC.

Between Google, youtube, parts sites, this site, I figure I can fix just about anything

Hi, M-J:
I use Dogpile search engine, it brings in a smaller number of addresses than Google. I have no use for two million answers to my search, Dogpile brings back enough for me. It is free. I like using free tools, providing other folks have tried them out first.

Get your pharmacy club card.
Your grocery card
your credit card
your wifi
the triple play
your cable the satellite the phone
evrything you do tracks you
don't drive your car it tracks you and your actions
do not leave the hose there are cameras everywhere they are all connected to everythin mentioned above

your toaster talks to amazon your toilet know which charmin you squeeze

do not dare hold and carry a smart phone even the basic flip phone records your whereabouts and actions

that tractor plots your fields and sends data

every purchase and action is followed and tracked

And I suppose you use some invisable internet service
even the hidden IP virtual network thing tracks everything you do and by buying into some false security to hide from one through another
you sign off on perhaps the worse of 2 evils.

One thing that helps (a LOT!) with the tracking is having your browser set to delete cookies/history/etc upon closing, then close out browser and open it again to visit each different site.

Of course, any site that you have to 'Log In' on will still identify you. A static IP also identifies you, but there are ways to change your IP, at least from all but your ISP. A good VPN (Virtual Private Network) works....to a point. But the company with said VPN will still know who you are, as you have to Log In to their services.

I'm working on another idea. Am setting up a bootable flash drive with Linux and will soon be using that most of the time. I doubt I'll ever "totally" move away from Windows, but would surely like to. Anyway, the Linux flash drive would be set up to delete ALL cookies and memory upon closing down -- which means sites could be tracked within each session, but there wouldn't be a continuous tracking file. Then again, they (whoever 'they' is) can still follow you according to what sites you normally visit, even if you don't log in. ...I mean, how many people in my area (gee, that's just 'ME" *lol*) will go to Youtube and search for tractor vids? Sometimes I'll log in to Youtube, but not usually.

There are steps anyone can take to lessen the amount of tracking that they incur online. But the ONLY way to not be tracked at all is simply to not be online.....EVER! And while the wife has a smart(azz) phone, it never gets turned on unless we need to check something or are waiting for a specific call while in town.

So, what's the point of this long, pointless post? Hmm....what IS the point?? Oh, got it! While there's no way to completely stop tracking while online, there are steps one can take to limit how much information each entity has. Google will have some info (undoubtedly), your ISP, your browser, sites you log into, sites you visit within the same session, etc, etc. The inconvenience of trying to limit tracking simply prevents all that information from being all in one file......for now. With technology growing so quickly, I see a future where one day your medical provider (and the gov't Shocked) will know when-and-how-much you go to the bathroom, what and how much you eat, etc. Technology will eventually be the absolute end of Personal Privacy.

Another vote for duckduckgo. It does not track you.
