Rubicon project cookie ?

When i was logging into my homepage, i noticed the following message at the bottom of my browser screen: "waiting for beacon.rubiconproject.com". This wasn't the site i was logging into, but i wasn't redirected to it either. I've read that it's a cookie, so i was wondering is it safe or is there a risk to my computer security and do i have to change my passwords for other sites ? A security scan showed nothing was wrong by the way. Thanks.

A very quick check on google shows the rubicon project to be some sort of advertising thing.

If it is a cookie then you should be able to delete it but be aware that there is the possibility of other files being on your commputer.

I presume that the rubicon project is for giving you advertisments related to what you look at on the internet.

just yet another tracking advertising cookie collecting info about where you browse so it can direct advertising to you, remove cookies remove-rubicon-project-cookies

You could always use an adblocker to block rubiconproject.com
