    How to remove tracking of databases on my computer?

    I always clear history and remove tracking caches. Now, I am getting databases that will not let me remove them. WTH.... I have a Mac and use Safari. Anyone else irritated by this?

    Are we talking cookies here, not databases?

    Cookies are easy to delete.... databases not so much.

    I guess I don't understand what you mean by "databases" in this context.

    Regular cookies are easy to delete, persistent ones, not so much.
    Buy Ebay, Walgreens, Citicard, etc. then as their owner, you own and can do what you like with the databases, that reside on their servers.

    So how do you get the databases off? It is easy to remove cookies or caches but the databases stay even when you say to remove all?????

    Instead of saying cache or cookie under the name it says database. They stay on even when you delete all or try to delete individually.

    Do you have an example of the filenames? And where these files live on your computer?
