Simple privacy enhancing tip when sharing links

I saw this in a tweet a few days back and thought a great little tip that everyone who cares about online privacy and tracking should try and practice.  




When you share an article to friends or on socialmedia, before you post it, delete the tracking parameters from it by modifying the url to remove:




?utm_ {...all text that comes after this}




Give it a go, you'll be shocked how many links you share have this tracking parameter in there 😱👍




Here's a bit more about utm tracking parameters from wikipedia for those who are interested:
