Privacy in Internet Explorer 10
Internet Explorer includes Tracking Protection designed to help prevent details about your web browsing from being automatically sent to other websites. When you have a Tracking Protection List enabled, Internet Explorer will send a Do Not Track request to the websites you visit. Tracking Protection Lists are like “Do Not Call” lists. When you turn on a Tracking Protection List, Internet Explorer will block third-party content from any site that is listed, and will limit the info that third-party sites can collect about you. To turn on Tracking Protection:
- Open Internet Explorer from the desktop.
- Click or tap the Tools button, point to Safety, and then click or tap Tracking Protection.
- Click or tap Your Personalized List, and then click or tap Enable.
