Type: Tracking Cookie


EPilot is one of the hundreds of tracking cookies that users can encounter while browsing the web. Research has shown that it is closely associated with, but, to be frank, it does not differ much from other ordinary tracking cookies – it is used for collecting information about users, including their interests, online habits, and web browsing behavior. Technically, tracking cookies are not malicious, but if you do not want third-party services to receive any information about you when you visit their websites/click on advertisements hosted by them, you should set your web browser to refuse cookies used by these services. If you do so, there is a possibility that not all aspects of the service will work properly. Tracking cookies are not dropped on one particular web browser. They can appear on any web browser, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, so if you use them all from time to time, you might need to remove the EPilot tracking cookie from all of them. At first glance, it may seem to be a time-consuming and challenging procedure, but you should not find it too difficult to erase it from all web browsers if you read the full report first and then use the manual removal guide that can be found below this article.

Tracking cookies have one main function – to collect and keep information about users. Speaking about EPilot, it is used to track user trends and patterns of how people perform searches. Second, it may be used to record search parameters, search terms, links clicked on by the user, and similar information. Third, it may send the server provider information about users’ ad views in order to understand their interests better and provide them with targeted advertising. Last but not least, it may be used to keep some technical details about the user’s machine, including the operating system type, IP address, and hardware model. If you wonder why services need all these details, here is a brief explanation for you. They may use them to improve the quality of the service, provide more relevant advertisements to users, and simply keep statistics about users’ habits/interests/preferences. This is not something dangerous, but you should remove EPilot from your browser if you are not ready to share any information about you with third parties. Yes, the recorded information might be shared with third parties, and this is, actually, quite worrying because this may happen without the user’s consent, specialists say.

EPilot, just like any other ordinary tracking cookie, is a small plain text file that is sent to the web browser. It is not some kind of program, so, technically, it is not installed on users’ computers. Instead, it is usually placed on users’ browsers when they open certain websites that make use of cookies or click on commercial advertisements using them. Do not freak out if you have found a cookie placed on your web browser because they are not considered malicious. Yes, they may raise privacy concerns in some cases, but, usually, they do not cause any serious harm. If you still do not trust tracking cookies and do not want to encounter any of them ever again, the smartest move in your case would be to disable cookies on your web browser completely. In other words, you need to set your web browser not to accept any cookies anymore. Keep in mind that certain features of the services you use might become unavailable if you disable cookies. Security specialists also say that users should browse only 100% reliable websites to prevent unreliable cookies used by disreputable companies/cyber criminals to be dropped on their systems without their knowledge.

It is not the end of the world if EPilot has been dropped on your web browser because it can be removed without difficulty, and, on top of that, it is not considered very harmful.
