There's a new tool that helps anyone paranoid about who's watching their every move online.

It's called Lightbeam.  It's from app developer Mozilla and it lets you monitor who is following your digital footprint.

According to Mashable.com it's free and available for download on Mozilla's Firefox browser. Lightbeam reveals what third-party companies are watching your online activity.

Mozilla says it hopes to provide transparency to web users looking to control their data and privacy.
