Verizon to Share Supercookie Data with AOL

You may recall our prior coverage of Verizon’s “supercookie,” which tracks all your Internet activity on the company’s cellular data network. Now Verizon has announced that it will be sharing that collected data with AOL, now owned by Verizon, for its ad network, and AOL will be able to see your gender, age range, interests, apps used, and sites visited. Thankfully, you can disable this tracking in Verizon’s privacy settings, under Relevant Mobile Advertising.favicon follow link
