Google and Facebook track you even if you surf porn sites in private mode

Tech giants Google and Facebook could be tracking your visits to adult sites even when you set your browser to private or incognito mode, according to the authors of a recent study on privacy standards of porn websites.

The study, titled “Tracking sex: The Implications Of Widespread Sexual Data Leakage And Tracking On Porn Websites”, analysed 22,484 pornography websites and found that 93% leaked user data to third parties.

It found that Google (and its subsidiaries) had trackers on 74% of the porn sites, Facebook on 10% and Oracle on 24%.

A Google spokeswoman told The New York Times that it does not use the information to build advertising profiles.
