I can’t read a medium-blog-post because I used up my free membership-preview-articles this month. They seriously want to force me to create an account with Medium. I’d rather write the authors that I can’t read their articles because Medium sucks.
@0 why would I? They can track you even through private mode. I see private mode only as a way to keep things from my history or when I need a fresh cache for a site.
And when I use the in-app-Browser of iOS in an app there is no private mode.

In order to keep reading “free” articles? 🙂

Technologically possible, but legally questionable. To my knowledge, the amount of such tracking the major players do is limited and not too controversial. If you have any *factual, contrastable and reliable* information in this sense (e.g., from legal proceedings), I'd be glad to know.
TL;DR: because you can. 🙂
