    Still on a social media fast, Jack, so I reckoned I’d have a closer look at your blog again.

    Yes, I’ve noticed this behavior with YouTube. I have Firefox (on the desktop, that is) set to clear history, cookies, etc. per every session. I can browse YouTube without being signed in to Google at all, and I still see recommended videos based on what I last watched, at least within a browser session.

    So of course they’re tracking me when I’m signed out.

    I’m very glad you’ve popped by, J. I’m finding Twitter very negative lately, too. Too many intolerant people and that’s just not my bag.

    Jack, are you on a VPN? If not, this will help your cause immensely. The other thing also, change your DNS to:, away from your internet providers DNS, or even worse the Google DNS if you’re using that. The DNS is the excellent new cloudflare service which is free.

    Thank you, I already use as there’s no way I would ever use Google’s. I do use a VPN but not 24–7 as there are some services that won’t permit me to log in through one.
