Mozilla Firefox had a Do-not-track feature that lets you tell websites that you don’t want your browsing behavior tracked. Some major websites track your browsing behavior so that they can then sell or provide that information to other companies, which in turn, show ads, products or services specifically targeted to you. This includes information about what sites you visit, things you like, dislike and purchase. In this tutorial we will explain how the Firefox Do-not-track feature works and show you how to turn it on.
How does the Do-not-track Firefox feature work?
When you use the Do-not-track feature, Firefox instructs every website you visit, which includes their advertisers and other content providers, that you don’t want your Internet browsing behavior tracked. Turning on the Do-not-track feature will in no way affect your ability to log into websites nor cause it to forget your private information, such as saved shopping carts, location information or login information.
