Supercookie, Verizon, AT&T

People have pressured Verizon and AT&T about privacy, following the lead of AT&T in dropping the use of "super cookies" which tracks subscribers mobile activity and online action Verizon now allows users to opt out completely from it.

Both Verizon and AT&T were guilty of using these specially programmed cookies that monitors users’ Internet and mobile  activities. Verizon, use this to get data on user’s interests for the purpose of advertising and marketing, it gave them information on what ads they should roll out. Watchdog groups who are against Supercookies have been adamant to have this removed, since these companies collect user information and forward it to advertisers, hackers may get hold of that information and could make use of them for illegal activities.
