    That is "propensity scoring". You get classified by what you buy and what you browse. That web page you open on Amazon will display a different price to you depending on your "propensity score". Your smartphone is probably a bigger threat than your browser.

    No, more cookies leads to more tracking, not less. Don't log in to services like Google, facebook, etc when browsing. If you do log in then clear cookies before surfing to the next site. I tend to use a few different browsers at once so that everything doesn't get tracked by any one service.

    Would such dilution help with privacy issues and what other ways might dilution be used?

    Not a critical question but curious. Thanks for all replies.
