Editors' Review

+

DoNotTrackMe for Chrome allows you to block trackers that automatically record your activity while you're browsing online. This program installs with just a click and works in the background to protect you in various ways while you explore online just like you've always done.

Pros

Quietly productive: Once you install this app, it will run in the background to keep you protected. You can access the main interface at any time by clicking the program icon in your browser's top toolbar. There you can see how many trackers have been blocked to date and per day, as well as adjust other program settings.

Customizable: While it's advisable to keep this program turned on at all times to avoid trackers, it can sometimes interfere with certain aspects of some sites. Fortunately, you can just switch the program off on a site if you run into trouble by clicking the icon in the top browser toolbar and flipping a switch. That setting will only hold for that particular site, and you can turn it back on again at any time.

Multiple protections: This app offers tracker blocking immediately upon installation and email blocking after you've created a free account. You can also choose to upgrade to a paid plan, which starts at $39 per year to access the Masked Cards and Masked Phones elements of the program.

Cons

Not much detail: While you can see how many trackers the program has blocked, you can't go through and choose who to block. You can also learn about some of the companies the program blocks through links in the company list, but most of the entries there don't fit into this category.

Bottom Line

DoNotTrackMe for Chrome provides a nice set of protections to help keep your personal information safe when you're browsing online. You can choose to turn it off at any time, and you can use the free features without limits. This program runs smoothly and incorporates a clear interface to help you understand what it's doing.

    "It works, period."

    February 18, 2012   |   By bartbrown

    Version: Do Not Track Plus for Chrome 1.0

    Pros

    Does exactly what it says it will do

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Oh, except "It seems when I have it activated my Facebook Chat doesn't work".... ummm, no... wait ... that would be a PRO!

    Summary

    It works, it's unobtrusive (unlike the hyenas it blocks), never causes a problem, and it's free. Provides instant satisfaction when you click on it and you see all the web scam artists it has simply blocked. No drama, no muss, no fuss -- I forget it's there, but in the week or so I've had it, it has blocked 2,627 attempted intrusions. Love the guy who whines ungrammatically "Works to [sic] well," "It's [sic] seems when I have it activated my Facebook Chat doesn't work." Gee whiz, really? Maybe it's telling you subliminally that you ought to spend less time on FB and more time studying, so you don't flunk 7th grade, again. If you absolutely HAVE to live in the fantasy-world of FB, turn "Do Not Track Plus" OFF when you're yakking mindlessly to your BFFs about what an AWESOME score you got last night in Halo. Better yet, ditch FaceBook and try real life.
