Last year, cousins from Israel visited us and used our wifi internet connection. All of a sudden, I started to receive Duolingo sponsor's commercial in Hebrew. Some weeks later, we had Japanese visitors who used also our wifi connection, and Duolingo sponsor's commercials turned to Japanese. I am somewhat worried that whatever transits by my internet connection be captured by Duolingo and I do not understand the reason. Any explanation? Thanks F.

Almost all the websites are using "trackers", Duolingo too.

I do not understand this. That is using the app on an IPhone. Not on a web browser.
