Will the anti tracking app Dissconect be effective to rid my device(and life) from an aggressive stalker/tracking every move I make on my LGK30 phone? I'm exhau
I'm really a novice at this tech savvy world we live in. I'm the 1st to admit my careless use of this stuff... As a result of my simplistic approach and carefree trust of "better" living through technology shite I made probably every begginers/self taught mistake most younger folks know to avoid... Stupid passwords I'd use(dogs name, birth yr.,pop culture hero's names etc...)hunt and peck is still my MO anyway I'll cut to the chase! I've uncovered an unknown entitie as I call it piggybacking my every move when im playing games of chance on PCH for real money.My phone was virtually taken over commandeered if you will. Like a presence I sensed as I was playing and playing well if I may be so bold but every time Every Time just towards the climax to the payoff...everything goes haywire! I'm shot from one page im doing well on to a completely different pg or it would just crash & my screen died... last night I was logging on for my chance of big bucks and a kind soul here on Mozilla or firefox sent me a warning that this site/ pg was Not Secure even though it appeared safe to me! Warned me of a lurking presence with some kind of split page capability ! I was instructed to go Incognito for secure reasons!!I never heard of such an ability to be followed around. Stalked if you will and then mugged at the most opportune time to benefit this menevolent evil criminal at my expense... My efforts...My good time yanked away, lost ...stolen!!! Not to mention my identity ,SS# Drivers licence# bank account info , Gmail accounts highjacked all used to fraudulently apply for loans, credit cards, Gov. Grants all using My Information!!! I'm Pissed Off and Horrified at my own part in this but more so of the predatory nature of these F-ing sociopathic thieves victimizing not just me but the millions of good folks not so savvy tech wise not having grown up with the knowledge taken for granted by most peeps of the younger generations... I know I know, I'm an old cranky man born in 1961 about to turn 58 this Oct. I'm a Neanderthal trying to survive in the 21st century... Trying being the active word ...and I Hate it!!! Gimme 2 sticks and a big rock and I could be happy entertaining myself for hours!!! Hah... Anyhow it's late I'm tired , if these A-holes thought they found a cash cow they sure picked the wrong guy! I'm on a fixed income, worked 30 odd yrs living below the "poverty" level now and it disgusts me what's going on! Sorry for the Rant but it's going to be yrs before all this I D Theft carp is resolved...Arrrggg!!!!

Hi Marko, Firefox should be able to make a secure connection to sites like PCH. Add-ons are a possible threat to your privacy inside Firefox, and external apps that modify your internet connection are another possible thread. So the first step is ruthlessly stripping out anything that isn't 100% trustworthy.
What Disconnect does is block certain requests generated by the page you are visiting. For example, the page may want to use an analytics service to monitor what you are looking at in the page. Disconnect will block that. However, I don't think the site is the problem in your case, it's something else, maybe, so while Disconnect could help with some issues, the cleanup is the key thing.
