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 to 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.

Important: DNT  doesn’t ’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.

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