Do Not Track Plus vs. Do Not Track
Do Not Track Plus by Abine is different from Do Not Track standard. Once DNT is enabled supported browsers sends signal to websites that users want to opt-out of tracking. How many websites respect this signal is another question. DNT Plus available in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer as an add-on.This add-on blocks trackers on the web automatically and shows you blocked ones when you click on its toolbar icon. So far DNT plus got positive reviews from top blogging sites and its add-on has been downloaded overs million times.
If you’re using Avira 2013 you don’t need to install Do Not Track Plus on IE and Firefox browsers because Avira’s Browser Tracking blocker also built on DNTPlus technology.
