On the Settings page, scroll down to the “Privacy and security” section and click Cookies and other site data.
Then scroll down and turn on the “Send a ‘Do Not Track’ request with your browsing traffic” switch.
A message explaining what DNT is comes up, after reading it click Confirm and close out of the Settings tab.
