Meet the new security feature coming to Chrome, “Do Not Track” It is already available for Firefox, IE and Safari. Google will ad this feature to Chrome by end of the year.
So, What Is “Do Not Track”
Well, it does pretty much the same thing as what the name says. Here is the official description of this initiative.Â donottrack.usÂ provides guidelines on how this can beÂ implemented as well.
Do Not Track is a technology and policy proposal that enables users to opt out of tracking by websites they do not visit, including analytics services, advertising networks, and social platforms. At present few of these third parties offer a reliable tracking opt out, and tools for blocking them are neither user-friendly nor comprehensive. Much like the popular Do Not Call registry, Do Not Track provides users with a single, simple, persistent choice to opt out of third-party web tracking.
Good news for all those extra securityÂ consciousÂ mind here! Will you be enabling this feature/installing extension when it is available?
