Editors' Review

+

DoNotTrackMe for Firefox for Mac uses multiple strategies to protect your privacy while you're browsing, shopping, and communicating online. Through this program, you can stop companies from tracking your browsing activity, mask your email, and much more.

Pros

Multiple protections: There are several tools you can use within this program to protect your privacy. As soon as you install it, the app begins blocking trackers that record your activity online. By signing up for a free account, you can access Account and Email protection, which masks your email address and protects your log-in information. If you choose to upgrade to a paid account, you'll have the added benefit of masked credit cards to use when you're making purchases online, as well as masked phone numbers.

Hidden operation: This app primarily runs in the background, blocking trackers and any other items you choose while letting you continue to browse just like you would normally. But if you do need to access it for any reason, all you have to do is click the program icon located on your browser's top toolbar.

Info options: If you'd like to know more about what the program is blocking and why, you can find that through the app's main interface. There you'll see a list of companies, some of which link to pages defining what they do and why it's in your best interest to block them.

Cons

Unstoppable pop-ups: Every time you visit a new site and the app blocks one or more trackers, a small pop-up window appears in the upper right-hand corner of your browser window. While these disappear after a minute or so, there doesn't seem to be a way to turn them off entirely.

Bottom Line

DoNotTrackMe for Firefox for Mac is a good way to ensure your private information stays secure while you're working online. You can choose how much protection you want and whether you'd like to pay for any of the premium services, but even the free options offer a lot in terms of increased security and anonymity. The program installs quickly and runs smoothly, making it worth checking out.

    "Don't notice a difference from DNT"

    December 22, 2012   |   By kellynepal3

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 2.2.5.1203

    Pros

    Same as DNT, great for preventing tracking.

    Cons

    None, although I also downloaded it for Safari, and the DoNotTrackMe window is out of focus. But this isn't a problem for Firefox.

    Summary

    Great service in preventing tracking. But don't see a difference with the previous version, DNT

    "Works great but occasionally blocks videos"

    December 12, 2012   |   By tom10i

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 2.2.5.1203

    Pros

    Very comprehensive and does allow adjustments to enable videos on most sites.

    Cons

    At Fox Sports, can make it impossible to see videos, due to what I suppose is commercial content/collection of information attached to videos. Same at NFL.com. They really need to address this issue, as it's been a problem for the last three or four years.

    Summary

    Very effective, sometimes too effective to allow uncomplicated viewing of videos from sources who collect data, such as Fox and NFL.com.

    "Works well to stop trackers."

    September 22, 2012   |   By kellynepal3

    Version: Do Not Track Plus for Firefox 2.2.1.611

    Pros

    Easy to install. I installed it for Safari, Firefox and Chrome.
    Easy to see who is tracking and very easy to change tracking settings.
    I am very computer illiterate, and this software is perfect for me, I didn't have to do anything to get it working.

    Cons

    Only con is that for Chrome, it wouldn't install automatically. I had to drag it into Chrome for it to work.

    Summary

    For someone like me who doesn't know much about the workings of a computer, this DNT+ software is perfect for preventing tracking of social networks, ad agencies and other businesses. I had no idea just how many cookies in my cookie section were from trackers, at least 50%.
    I had no idea how much I was being tracked, even when I go online to banks I was being tracked. Just being on this page ( CNet review) there are 18 trackers.

    Pros

    C'mon... one of you geniuses can tell me where to put the file I downloaded. PLEASE?

    Summary

    Please, somebody... ANYbody, where do I put the file?

    Updated on May 15, 2012

    NEVER MIND. I contacted the manufacturer and downloaded it directly from them instead of CNET. This one works.

    "Excellent! Thank you Abine Software!"

    April 08, 2012   |   By rcamardo1

    Version: Do Not Track Plus for Firefox 2.1.0

    Pros

    Easy to install, gives just the right amount of information, great company. You could do a lot of this yourself, but Do Not Track Plus does it for you. Now if only Safari would allow better access to blocking. I've moved to Firefox, as much as I like Safari, because they only allow partial blocking. Keep up the good work!

    Cons

    None that I can see so far.
