"A super cookie is a type of browser cookie that is designed to be permanently stored on a user's computer. Super cookies are generally more difficult for users to detect and remove from their devices because they cannot be deleted in the same fashion as regular cookies." - source: Techopedia\n\nUnfortunately, I live in a place where a monopoly Broadband supplier reigns, at least if you are going to have a wired connection that is. Slow/expensive/unreliable/lousy service/no competitive offers etc etc.\n\nNow, to add insult to injury, I discover that my ISP places its own super cookie in my browser! This was revealed to me quite recently when I ran a scan with a program called Security Task Manager. The ISP's super cookie in effect passes my search/browsing activity to almost a THOUSAND clients, who I guess are mostly commercial purchasers of such data!\n\n Security Task Manager will remove the super cookie, but it is to no avail, as my ISP quickly replaces it. I gather the only solution is VPN, or employing data encryption over HTTPS, which I am currently looking into.\n\nJust wondering if anyone else troubled with super cookies?
