Enable Do Not Track Me feature


We all know How websites track you and study your browsing activities on the internet. Your web browser plays an important role in this. Hence, Chrome and Mozilla have an in-built feature called ‘Do no track me’.  What this feature does? It automatically adds a ‘Do not track me’ in the header before sending out your request.
Chrome:

Firefox:

Do Not Track is a step toward putting you in control of the way your information is collected and used online. Do Not Track is a feature in Firefox that allows you to let a website know you would like to opt-out of third-party tracking for purposes including behavioral advertising. It does this by transmitting a Do Not Track HTTP header every time your data is requested from the Web.

Note, enabling this option does not mean Websites won’t track you. It is just the browsers way of saying ‘This user doesn’t want to be tracked’. Some websites may choose to ignore you and track you anyway possible. To avoid this you can use Chrome Extensions or Firefox Addons to block trackers.
