Gator

Tracking cookies are not considered serious threats, so do not freak out if you ever find one of them on your system. Gator is one of the thousands of tracking cookies that exist in the world. It is already quite old (it was detected in 2010), but some users might still encounter it. If you can locate it next to other cookies on the web browser you use, it is very likely that it was placed there some time ago. It is not considered malicious, but it might be used to keep/record some information about you, so feel free to remove Gator from your system to put an end to this activity. We cannot confirm that Gator is actively used to collect information these days since it is quite old, but it would not be worse if you remove it from your web browser. Tracking cookies might be placed on all users’ browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Luckily, users have the full freedom to manage all cookies themselves. We would suggest eliminating those that have been dropped on your system after visiting shady websites immediately. Instructions provided below will help you to get rid of Gator and all other undesirable browsing cookies manually. Read more »

Bridgetrack

BlueMountain

You do not need to remove BlueMountain from your system because it is not malicious and it will not cause any harm to you, but, of course, you have the freedom to eliminate this tracking cookie if its presence bothers you a lot or you simply do not trust it. BlueMountain is, technically, not intruder either even though you do not know anything about its appearance because it is very likely that you have agreed that it would be dropped on the system yourself. It is hard to say the exact website you have visited, but it is very likely that BlueMountain is closely associated with https://www.bluemountaingroup.co.uk/ and https://www.bluemountain.com/. Legitimate websites inform users about the use of cookies and allow users to manage them. Of course, not all the users remember clicking the Accept Cookies button themselves. As a consequence, not all of them know why certain cookies are listed under the Cookies category on their web browsers. A bunch of users cannot explain why BlueMountain has been dropped on their systems too, and there is nothing surprising about that. BlueMountain is not considered to be malicious, but you can delete it from the system if you want to. Read more »

Xnxx

You need to be extremely selective about the cookies that are embedded in your web browsers because malicious ones exist too. The Xnxx cookie is our main focus in this report. Cookies are pieces of data that record information that can be both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable. The data is stored by the cookie so that whenever the user revisits the website, some data is already available. This data might include preferences, language settings, time zone, geo-location, and browsing history. Using this data, the website might be capable of presenting the visitor with a more relevant and personalized experience. For example, if you revisit an online shopping website, you might find recently viewed items, and shopping suggestions might reflect your previous browsing history. In most cases, cookies are harmless and even useful, but some are more intrusive and might require removal. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team recommends deleting Xnxx cookie because it can monitor activity and, potentially, record highly sensitive information. Continue reading to learn more. Read more »
