How To Enable the Google Chrome Do Not Track Feature

Google Chrome is the latest browser to incorporate the Do Not Track (DNT) feature in a recent update. Sites that you visit collect data to serve you ads based on your interests and demographics. The DNT option blocks sites from collecting that data about the sites you visit.

Note: DNT doesn’t protect you on sites that ignore the Do Not Track request. But if you like to keep your browsing more private, you’ll want to enable the option.

Enable Do Not Track in Chrome

Previously you could enable DNT in Chrome via an extension, but now it’s included by default with the new update. To enable DNT, click the Options button on the top right corner of Chrome and select Settings.

Google Chrome Options

In the Setting tab, scroll down and click Show Advanced Settings.

Chrome Show Advanced Settings

Scroll down further and under Privacy check Send a ‘Do Not Track’ Request with your Browsing Traffic.

DNT Request

A message explaining what DNT is comes up, after reading it click OK and close out of the Settings tab.

    Thanks ! I saw DNT, but didn’t know what it was.I didn’t know you could stop or stall the eye in the sky.

    By far the simplest way to do this is to open a new tab and paste following :
    chrome://chrome/settings/search#Do%20Not%20Track
