To change these settings click to the wheel on the top right of the Main Menu and check the Privowny components, Security, and Notifications tabs.
Furthermore, by default:
- All detected trackers are blocked

You can adjust your preferences for trackers from the Toolbar (for all the trackers detected on the page at once) or from the Tracker Panel (to fine tune by tracker or tracker category). You can block data collection on all websites from the Data Manager or only for specific websites from the Toolbar. You can also encrypt pieces of data stored in your Data Manager.
