Anti tracker seems to kill comments to WSJ
« on: October 31, 2021, 09:16:46 PM »
I had antitrack pop up a few days ago.  I did not understand why it suddenly appeared, but it seemed to be a good idea to activate it.  However, now when I read the WSJ, i cannot see the comments to the articles, or my  responses to those comments.  This seems to be happening on my tablet and phone, as well - they are also covered by Avast, but I did not activate antitrak on them.

How can I turn off/delete antitrack?

I would also suggest that when you advise the activation of software like this, you give people some idea of what adverse effects it might cause.

If you're syncing your settings, it would affect all devices.
Anti Track block anything that tracks. That most likely includes posting replies to WSJ.
I personally don't use that feature.

Thanks for the response.  I would like to turn it off, but cannot find "antitrack" anywhere in the various Avast products that I use.  Where is it located?
