With Anonymizer Nevercookie, we continue our commitment to providing consumers with the latest products that help protect their privacy and identity each time they go online.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 22, 2010
Anonymizer, Inc., the leader in consumer online anonymity solutions, announced today that a beta version of Anonymizer Nevercookie is now available. The free Firefox plugin, which was announced earlier this month, is designed to combat Evercookie and can be downloaded from http://nevercookie.anonymizer.com or from the company’s Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/anonymizer. In the coming weeks, Anonymizer Nevercookie will also be available from the Firefox Add-ons website.
“Anonymizer Nevercookie gives Firefox users the extra fire power they need to ensure that when they go into private browsing mode, they really are protected,” said Lance Cottrell, founder and chief scientist for Anonymizer. “With Anonymizer Nevercookie, we continue our commitment to providing consumers with the latest products that help protect their privacy and identity each time they go online.”
Anonymizer Nevercookie extends Firefox’s private browsing mode by preventing persistent tracking systems like Evercookie from abusing both the Adobe Flash Local Storage Object (LSO) and Microsoft’s Silverlight Isolated Storage (MIS). The plugin also eliminates the manual steps required to completely remove Evercookies while retaining all of the practical cookies that a user actually wants to keep, such as those for browsing history and remembered logins. When Anonymizer Nevercookie is engaged along with Firefox’s private browsing mode, the plugin quarantines an Evercookie and removes it after the browsing session.
Anonymizer Nevercookie was developed by Anonymizer Labs, a dedicated research and development division of Anonymizer, Inc.
