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:

  1. Open Internet Explorer from the desktop.
  2. Click or tap the Tools button, point to Safety, and then click or tap Tracking Protection.
  3. Click or tap Your Personalized List, and then click or tap Enable.
