AT&T, a U.S. company best known as a phone and Internet service provider, has offered customers of the GigaPower Internet service plan the option to opt out of having their browsing habits tracked by advertisers/advertising agencies. They charge an additional $29 per month for this. This isn’t a full-blown privacy cloak, as your other applications will still be able to track you.
