How To Enable Do Not Track in All Web Browsers

Want to enable “Do Not Track”? Well, this tutorial will tell you how to enable “Do Not Track” in Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and Opera.


What will “Do Not Track” do
While using HTTP to communicate with websites, enabling “Do Not Track” includes “DNT” HTTP header with a value of “1” in your browser. This value of “1” express that you want to opt out of tracking.
Do Not Track problem you need to know
Also, enabling “Do Not Track” doesn’t change your browser settings. You need to update websites so as they pay attention towards Do Not Track field.
Let’s discuss the steps to enable “Do Not Track” in all web browsers:

Internet Explorer


• Click the gear-shaped “Tools” button, point to “Safety”, and select “Tracking Protection.”
• Choose “Your Personalized List” and click “Enable” button.

Mozilla Firefox


• Click the Firefox menu button and select “Options.”
• Click over to the “Privacy” tab and choose “Tell websites I do not want to be tracked.” Now Firefox will send the DNT: 1 HTTP header whenever you connect to a website.

Google Chrome


• Go to “Settings” page, chrome://chrome/settings/.
• Click “Show Advanced settings” link.
• Under Privacy, check the last option “Send a ‘Do Not Track’ request with your browsing traffic.”
• In Chrome 22, enable “Do Not Track” by installing Do Not Track extension from the Web Store.




• Clicking gear button and choose “Preferences.”
• Click over to the “Advanced” icon and select “Show Develop menu in menu bar.”
• Click the page button, point to “Develop”, and enable the “Send Do Not Track HTTP Header” option.




• Click the Opera menu button, point to Settings, and select “Preferences.”
• Click “Advanced” tab in the Preferences window and select “Security.”
• Enable “Ask websites not to track me” check box.

Things you will need
1. The web will likely still be full of websites that track you even after “Do Not Track” is enforced by law.
2. There are several websites that ignore the Do Not Track field. In fact, all websites respond in different ways to this request.
3. Web browsers use the null value by default indicating that user hasn’t expressed the desire to get tracked or not.
4. There is no built-in setting for enabling “Do Not Track” feature in Google Chrome.
1. Do Not Track header has three values- Do Not Track, Track and Null. Set it to “Do Not Track” for all web browsers.
2. You need to add Do Not Track in Safari in Mac OS X Lion. For this:
Click “Develop.” Now, choose “send Do Not Track HTTP Header.” It is only used in Lion Dev Previews, but it will likely come to a Safari update for existing versions of Mac OS X in the near future.
3. But in IE 10, Do Not Track is enabled automatically.
4. Also, tracking is a very thorny issue. It can be used to display useful ads.
This is how you can enable “Do Not Track.” For more
