Does AdBlock Keep my browsing data from being uploaded?

So I get that AdBlock keeps ads from coming it, but does it also keep Big Brother from sucking up my browsing history into their vast databases in the first place?

    Hi Dan,

    While it is disabled by default, AdBlock comes with a filter list called "EasyPrivacy", which blocks a certain number of web tracking scripts. If you'd like, you can enable it at AdBlock button > Options > Filter lists.

    As for the browsing history, that depends on the search engines and websites that you use. We recommend taking a look at their privacy policies for more details.
