Have you ever felt like someone was following you on the internet? Well, when we search for something, we often get a lot of suggestions that are related to what we were looking for. Google may say this isn’t true, but it’s not a secret that the Internet keeps track of our private information to find our devices. This happens because our browsers have a default setting that lets websites track us.
There is a chance that even when a user sends a “Do not track” (DNT) request, some websites may still collect information about the user, which helps them send personalized content, ads, and suggestions on their websites.
Users can always choose an option that says they don’t want websites to track their data. Here’s what you can do:
How to send a “Do not track” request from your computer:
– Open Google Chrome on your desktop.
– Click on the three horizontal dots on the screen’s right side.
– From the drop-down menu, click on “Privacy.”
Then, you’ll be taken to a new window where you’ll need to click the Privacy and Security tab in the top left corner.
– Click the buttons for cookies and other site data.
– Finally, turn on the switch to send a “Do not track” request from your browser.
How to make your Android phone send a “Do not track” request:
– On your Android phone, open Google Chrome.
Tap the three horizontal dots on the right side of the screen.
– Click on “Settings.”
– Click the Privacy and Security button under the Basics tab.
– Click on “Do not track” and make sure the setting is turned on.
