Re: Yes! Someone's remembered TrackMeNot

Actually, on thinking a little further about this, stuff like TrackMeNot (not particularly TMN specifically) works best when the miscreants are dubiously collecting data via a browser and web access, yes?

These days the miscreants are more likely to be slurping our data by means of a custom "app", no browser necessary or even no browser access allowed.

The interweb is dead, long live the proprietary and non-transparent app :(

Doesn't that render stuff like TrackMeNot rather irrelevant?

It's not pretty, is it.
