Tracking links are a way for sites to track you across the web. They usually look like super long strings of random numbers attached to the end of normal URLs, and companies use them to build up dossiers on people based on their browsing habits. And they can reveal VERY sensitive information about you!
Luckily there are many tools available to help you strip them out and protect your privacy.
