Watch JR Smith discuss Privacy

Several months ago AVG made a decision to support consumer choice when it became the first Internet security company to make Do Not Track functionality (DNT), an integral part of its software suite. We believe this empowers the consumer much more than having a default browser DNT setting.  A browser’s ability to block tracking depends on websites voluntarily complying (many don’t), and only give consumers an “either/or” kind of control—assuming websites do comply.

Online tracking isn’t something that can be deemed wrong or right, but AVG believes consumers should be given a choice.
