Why should I care?
Here are some reasons why you may want to use R.O.B.E.R.T.:
- Reduce tracking - Trackers can link your activity between devices. Blocking trackers on all devices is the best way to stay private.
- See fewer ads - Nobody likes seeing ads, so this is a no brainer
- Use less data - Most sites have more ads/trackers than content. By blocking them you can use your data to download actual content, not spam.
- Reduce risk of infection - Known malware distributing and phishing websites are blocked so you have a much smaller chance of catching an Internet STD.
