Editors' review

Disconnect protects your personal information by blocking unwanted actors from obtaining your browsing habits. Neatly blended with Chrome and offering a powerful toolkit, Disconnect is one of the best blocking apps on the market and will improve your Internet experience tremendously.

Pros

Helpful interface: Disconnect offers an organized drop-down menu that partitions all tracking activity into groups like Social, Analytics, and Advertising. Common tracking sites, such as Google and Facebook, are given dedicated buttons so you can easily enable/disable them when needed. We enjoyed the interactive visualize page because of its informative informational map.

Excellent abilities: When comparing Disconnect to other blocking applications, we noted that Disconnect offered the best performance. For instance, Disconnect had recognized 80+ trackers while another program recognized less than 20.

Fast browsing: During our tests, we could easily notice that websites loaded faster while using Disconnect. On average, we were informed that Disconnect increased our browsing speed by 8 percent. You will also save bandwidth while using this program because it blocks unwanted content.

Cons

Technical errors: We attempted to access various sections of this application but received error messages nearly every time. This is most likely an error with Disconnect's website as that is where content is hosted, and we expect this issue to be remedied shortly.

Bottom Line

Disconnect is reliable and provides everything you need to protect your information. So the technical errors we uncovered should not cause you too much concern.
