Tracking Protection Lists.

IE supports a feature called tracking protection.

This feature denies requests to serveral tracking urls. Therefor the browser require a list containing such urls.

Such lists can be found here: http://www.iegallery.com/de-de/trackingprotectionlists

Is there a way to add such feature within the MWG? So Chrome and other browser can use this feature?

Thanks

Frank

Re: Tracking Protection Lists.

Hello,

this has been discussed a little off the thread. The lists cannot be used without further modification. As a very first and very simple counter measure against tracking I recommend to add an HTTP Header "DNT: 1" which is pretty much the browser option "Do not Track". This can be enforced on the proxy for all destinations, of only for destinations you suspect tracking, such as social media, shopping, advertising, etc.

The header basically tells a website to not track you, but this is not an enforcement. To enforce not being tracked it would be helpful to block hosts known for tracking. It would be possible to put in some efforts and setup our own TPL. Is there some more interest in this topic by other customers? Please give me some feedback 🙂

Thanks,

Andre
