Controlling Tracking via AppleScript

Simply copy the following script(s) into a new "Script Editor" document and press run.
After pasting them, consider saving the scripts to disk for future re-use. You could even save them to iCloud Drive (or e.g. Dropbox or Google Drive) to have them available on all your Macs.
Feel free to customize them for your use cases; if you need details on how a particular method works, please refer to our AppleScript reference.

Note: We do not take responsibility for any data loss incurred by running these scripts.
Make sure to back up your data (e.g. by copying the directories mentioned here to a different location) before running these scripts.
