Hi All. Here’s a quick Tip regarding a certain Browser Setting that I recently became aware of:

As quoted by Mozilla:

Do Not Track is a step toward putting you in control of the way your information is collected and used online. Do Not Track is a feature in Firefox that allows you to let a website know you would like to opt-out of third-party tracking for purposes including behavioral advertising. It does this by transmitting a Do Not Track HTTP header every time your data is requested from the Web.

Now, first thing to note about this setting is that not all Browers and Advertisers honor it. It’s not compulsory according to the Digital Advertising Alliance.

Second thing to note is that while some browsers have this turned on as a default, others have it turned off. It’s very inconsistent.

Below are some screen shots of where to find this setting:

First, we have Firefox:

DNT_FF

Next, we have Chrome. (You’ll have to click on Advanced Settings)

DNT_Chrome

Up next, we have Opera:

DNT_Opera

Then IE (This one’s a bit Tricky. You have to open up the Tools Menu by clicking on the Gears Icon on the top right side of the Window, then go to “Safety\Tracking Protection”):

DNT_IE

Finally, Safari:

Cheers for now 🙂
