"Do-Not-Track" Support

    Quick questions:

    1. Does anyone know, with definitive and accurate knowledge, as to whether WordPress.com hosted sites support “Do Not Track” preferences of Internet users who select such option on their browsers?

    2. Does anyone know, with definitive and accruate knowledge, as to whether WordPress.com’s advertising partners (in regards to ads posted on WordPress.com hosted sites) do likewise?

    Answers to these two questions would be greatly appreciated (especially from employees of WordPress who have such information to answer my inquiries). Thanks!

    Hi there,

    We looked into this and the answer is we don’t currently honor do not track preferences, and can’t guarantee that all of our advertisers do.


    Liz – Thank you for finding out the answers to my inquiries. Your assistance is very helpful. Again, thanks! :-)


    I use Ghosterly and Privacy Badger and both help with tracking cookies and tracking by third parties.
