Web bugs or web beacons are tiny clear single pixel images that are embedded into web pages you visit that monitor your behavior. Often used for Data Analytics, they are so tiny that they are not visible to the naked eye. When a user downloads a web page, the browser tries to download these tiny image files, which may download trackers. Associated with cookies, these bugs are monitoring your behavior on websites you visit. All this information is very useful to companies who want to create a dossier or sell products to you.
