What can they track?
Let me pull out my slide rule and check. 🤣
Little early to be getting me all fired up... ;)
Ha Ha Ha!
Do you know how it works on a blockchain?
So conceivably it can tell the site someone linked from, possibly even the specific page on the site?
Blogs? So if I visit a blog page, the blogger can see where I came from? Or info about my IP? Or what?
What if someone shares a link on a private page, like a PM on sites like this? Would it show up just as linking from Amirite, or does it show the specific page?
What if you follow a link someone sends you in regular emails?
Ha ha ha...sorry to throw so many questions at you, Rooster. I just recently found out that analytics might give more information than most are aware. It honestly had never occurred to me that bloggers would have access to analytics, though it does make sense.
Online privacy is a huge issue with me, but never having run a website or done a public blog, I had no idea of the particulars.
I appreciate your input. :)
IPs can be changed, even MACs can be changed temporarily. My concern was more if it shows the link comes from a specific email or "private" webpage.
Okay, but if I link from here it will give my user name as well as that it was linked from here?
Thanks for all the info!
Someone told me yesterday that on one of our blockchain sites that anyone watching a video at the same time can view our IPs. If true, that doesn't sound very secure to me. :(
Really? I was a little leery of checking it out after he told me that. Especially after I had trouble with another blockchain site.
Do you know anything about how it works on the blockchain?
