> Google has developed a browser add-on to allow users to opt-out of Google Analytics across all websites which use it. This is also available in the Chrome web store.
> Some browsers include a feature known as “Do Not Track” or DNT. This allows you to indicate a preference that websites should not track you. However, while DNT is available in many browsers, websites are not required to recognize its request, so it may not always work. You can get help on how to use DNT in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Safari.
