    ghostery app
    I am running safari browser right now. yesterday I installed ghostery app. later in day when on safari, I notice 10 in red ball up on my search bar. I clicked on it and saw the sites blocked.
    today I was again on safari, and saw 6 in red ball....clicked on it and saw that some sites duplications of what I saw yesterday.
    I see that I can whitelist some but have not done so yet!

    do I need to do anything at all with this info?

    Short answer, No. Let Ghostery do its job.

    If you come across a site where it doesn't function properly, you can Whitelist it. In practice, this is rare. And as a BTW, no need to check up on all the tracking unless you are into that. Ghostery is happy working in the background

    It means that each day those sites tried to track your activity.
