Third-party websites have the ability to track your online behavior and share this information without your knowledge or consent. Tracking Protection, a new feature in Internet Explorer 9, lets you choose which third-party sites can receive your information and track you online. When you add a Tracking Protection List, Internet Explorer will prevent your information from being sent by limiting data requests to websites in the list. For more information on tracking, see this recent IE blog post: Browse Without Being Browsed.
