Re: 86% top websites expose visitors to 3rd-party track cookies

said by StuartMW:

Doesn't almost every browser allow to block 3rd-party cookies?

Smart phones like most droids don't allow for third party blocking on the default browser. Just to block "all cookies" option which is going to stop a lot of pages from working, so not really an option.
If the percentage of people don't know/care to block them stays high this will keep manifesting (tablets/phones) leaving only the pc market who know and care, actively blocking them.

Well using a smartphone/tablet allows you to be tracked not only virtually (via cookies) but physically (GPS and/or tower pinging) as well. In short they know what websites you've been to as well as where you go IRL.
