Internet users forget to logout from Facebook and Google en masse, which allows the companies to accurately track users on other websites, according to a report compiled by Dutch consumer organization ‘Consumentenbond’. The organization asked 1,800 Dutch participants to check their privacy settings on their phone or PC and asked which measures the participants take against online tracking.

Can’t say I’m surprised.
