The CNIL (Commission Nationale Informatique et Libertés [French data protection authority]) provides suggestions to limit the tracking of your browser activity:

  • Blocking third-party cookies. Third-party cookies are not usually necessary for using resources available on the internet. If you wish to limit their tracking, it is recommended to refuse them by default.

  • Prevent installation of the most widely used trackers. There are numerous extensions that block several trackers. For example, DoNotTrackMe, Disconnect and Ghostery can be used for Chrome.

  • Blocking social network sharing options.

  • Limiting Adobe Flash cookies. It is recommended to change these settings by connecting to the settings manager accessible online, but only if the website allows you to deactivate flash to prevent storage on computers, it does not work 100% of the time.

Instead of manually deleting LSO cookies, you can download an extension to your browser that will delete them each time you close your browser. For example, Betterprivacy does this for Firefox.
