Issue: I created a website with Wix and it is also hosted on their platform. I now use the Brave browser and block all cross-site trackers. When I visit my own website, the cross-site trackers listed below are blocked. I requested from Wix to disable or remove them from my site and one support person says “they are cookies and they cannot be removed.” I ask, “are they all essential cookies?” and they say “mostly.” I say, “well, when I use Brave and block all cross-site trackers, Brave blocks these and the site still works normally, including the third party apps on my site. They must not be all essential. Is there a tool to allow visitors to opt-out of non-essential cookies?” They say, “No, but go to x link to vote for such a tool.” I vote to make a tool. Then another Wix support person says, “These urls are not cookies.” I say, “well what are they if not cookies? Wix told me they were cookies. Brave classifies them as cross-site trackers and blocks them. What are they if they are not cookies and how does Wix use them?” They say, “Ask Brave why they consider them cross-site trackers” and provides no further explanation of what they are or what they do. So Brave, what are these urls and why do you consider them cross-site trackers?
This can be reproduced by visiting my site www.petermancina.com with cross-site tracking blocked in Brave. Click on the Brave icon to the right of the website bar, click on the down arrow next to cross-site trackers blocked.
Expected result: I’d like Brave to explain to me how these urls fit the parameters of a “cross-site tracker” that needs to be blocked and provide information on what these urls might be doing so I can better interact with Wix support and help visitors to my site not be tracked by Wix.com.
I am using Brave v.1.10.97
Cross-site trackers that Brave blocked: 2 of the 10 trackers blocked since Brave community only allows for 4 links to be included in the posts of new Brave community users
I can provide more blocked trackers if requested.
