Web Beacons is a new fact in yahoo monitoring system.This aim is to give these statistics to the partner companies arranged by agreement and to improve the "advertisement guiding" function.
When Yahoo upgraded its features and the capacities of the mail accounts have grown to 2GB,the monitoring methods that we all have been far too familiar with in the last couple of years have got upgraded also. Yahoo is now keeping track on it's members that are getting into groups or using Yahoo services."Web Beacons" stores all these datas to yahoo's personal servers.
Anyhow, those who are against of this and do not want to be followed have an option. Yahoo never published this option .If you want to get out of yahoo tracking on you,simply do these tips.

1. First of all you Go to the address code
http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy
There you will see a column of Special Topices.Right under that you can see a link named "COOKIES"
now click the "Cookies" link.

2. After that you can see a link named "Web Beacons".Click that link .[It is under the "Reference Links" Column.]

3. On this page, then you will see a link "click here to opt out" .click on that link [It will be at the end of the third paragraph under the "Outside the Yahoo! Network" title]

4. After a second, a page that texted with "you have been out of the monitoring program" will load. Without doing anything, close that page or continue your usual surfing by typing another address in the address bar.[Warning:Do NOT click the "Cancel Opt-out" button, your action will be cancelled]

5. You are done. Now Yahoo cannot monitor you.And it will not record what you're doing during surfing.

You can also block websites in your home
