Editors' Review

DoNotTrackMe for Chrome is a helpful application that prevents online trackers from collecting your data while you surf the Web. Neatly blending into Chrome, this add-on gives you control of your browser and provides security tools to protect your personal information.

Pros

Awesome performance: Upon loading a new website, we noted that DoNotTrackMe's blocking capabilities were fast and reliable. While this program can block most tracking services, an innovative feature suggests which trackers may be beneficial for you, preserving your online experience.

Privacy protection: Besides blocking trackers, DoNotTrackMe for Chrome masks your personal email address from advertisers and the like. This option is somewhat limited in the free version of this application, but we found the email forwarding to be timely and secure.

Excellent support: The online how-to guides and FAQs answered all questions that we had about this program. Additionally, DoNoTrackMe offers an 800 number for more advanced technical support, so we are confident that you will never be lost.

Cons

Weaker than competitors: We ran DoNotTrackMe against a similar program and observed that DoNotTrackMe usually blocked 10-20 percent fewer trackers than its competitor. This isn't a large issue, but it does make us wary about how well the paid version of this software will perform.

Bottom Line

DoNotTrackMe for Chrome's blocking and privacy features are near perfect -- you will find very few faults. We suggest that DoNotTrackMe add more personalization features, such as Ghostery's whitelist option. In all aspects, this is an excellent application for your Chrome browser, and we recommend that you download DoNotTrackMe to ensure your privacy.

"Doesn't do anything."

I don't know any.

Cons

Doesn't erase tracks.

Summary

Run my registry cleaner monthly. It finds thousands of tracks. The app is crap.

"Great when it works - but no support; use with caution"

February 09, 2015  |  By Daonitre

 |  Version: Blur (formerly DoNotTrackMe) for Chrome 4.5.1337

Pros

I used MaskMe, DeleteMe, and DNTM and recommended them to pretty much everyone I knew...

Cons

...now people are saying that the above (and Blur included) are not properly downloading, constantly giving them errors / issues on pages, or fighting their different browsers for control over some login elements. I'd thought it was a fluke and they just weren't using it right until now MM tells me that my password is incorrect EVEN THOUGH IT WORKS to view the saved passwords. I cannot join Blur until the MM password is accepted, and I can't change the MM password without losing approximately a year worth of saved information. The only support option when opened now shows "This department does not exist"...

Summary

Great concept and wonderful that they've combined some functionality - but with 0 support on a paid application and buggy account management (the differing information with whether or not my password is correct) means I simply cannot recommend this to anyone. What a shame.
