From the mac thread, clicking www.apple.com/clips, brings me
to VigLink Shopping
It didn't on my phone.
Opt Out of VigLink
Mike, the opt out link doesn't work.
I followed the opt out link earlier, and a few hours on, and I'm still being redirected !
It's based on a browser cookie, so if you change browsers and/or clear out cookies, it won't remember you've opted out.
I thought being a club member was enough. I can't recall opting out. But it's possible I did and forgot.
Click the opt-out link and check...
I've not done any of those things, and I still get the viglink redirection.
I just clicked on the OPT out again, and it already remembers I'm Disabled
However, I then click on the apple.com/clips link in the first post, and I get straight back to viglink
Browsers can be configured to handle cookies different ways, including deleting them upon exit, etc.
I do have Block 3rd party cookies set, but that doesn't explain when I go to the opt out page, it remembers I've opted out, yet it doesn't abide by it.
I'll try restarting my browser - I've not closed in for a few weeks now.
Edit : nope - no change
Ah, I didn't understand what the issue was until now. VigLink sucks. I try to block it as much as possible.
The opt out works, but I don't think I should have to opt out.
I am seeing this now as well.
What is VigLink and where is it coming from? I don't appear to have any spyware. Just did a system check.
It's essentially a way to feed referral revenue to the forum owners, and is part of the forum software. It replaces links to stores such as Amazon with its own links, but often breaks them in the process. I hate it.
I recently had to opt out again. And again, as a paying member of the TCF Club, I shouldn't have to opt out at all.
I'm starting to get Viglink on news articles. I just had it redirect the USA Today link from this post to Viglink: https://www.tivocommunity.com/commu...ment-compensation.497295/page-9#post-11328109
And as others have said, as a paying TCF Club member why am I getting advertisements? I thought the point of joining TCF Club was to support TCF and not get any advertisements. Now I need to consider whether I should renew when it comes up or just drop TCF Club.
I've removed TCF Club from the Viglink addon.
