    This afternoon a stupid little blue menu appeared on the right side of my phone when viewing Addicts on chrome. I opened it, requested that they not sell my data, clicked save, and it's still there. Km assuming to annoy me until I change my preference to "sell my info please." Anyone else seeing this?

    I've not seen it, but I wonder if this is this part of the Cali Consumer Privacy Act?

    anyone that think everything they have ever done in Explorer and Chrome hasn't been sold a millions times isn't being honest with themselves. Google has every email you have ever sent (as an example)

    Of course, the banner is just annoying and given the chance to say no I usually do. Not naive enough to think that that keeps em from selling it at all though.

    FWoo,

    You can get rid of most of the ad crap by choosing the "Addicts Old " profile at the bottom of any page. You will know that you have the correct profile if you see the blue ribbon in the logo.

    I get zero ads, popups, or other crap on either my phone or PC.

    I pretty much use Chrome on both.
