If you block ads to begin with, how can ad companies construct a profile?
Even the Lifehacker author couldn't get AdNauseum to work properly:
The author did like the adblocking capabilities, which is basically built on uBlock Origin, so that doesn't say anything new. Just stick with uBO and that should be enough.I confess, I couldn’t get AdNauseum to produce effective results on my Firefox installation—nothing appeared “clicked” in my vault—but the extension’s adblocking capabilities worked wonderfully. However, I have a pretty unique adblocking setup at home, which could explain my issues.
