    "Effective and easy."

    February 7, 2014  |   By vreese

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 2.2.9.812

    Pros

    I have only been using this for less than a week, but it seems pretty effective. I haven't had any problems with unwanted e-mails yet. One thing I like is that it will fill in the email address and confirm email boxes.

    Cons

    When filling in forms, it will pause for several seconds. One other small issue is that if I ask it to make a strong password at work, I can only access the same site at work because I don't know the password. Perhaps if I installed the program on other computers it would work there as well, but this is not a major issue.

    Summary

    Very good program with few problems, and a good price.

    "Blocks social sites and companies incoming sites."

    February 6, 2014  |   By sissyll

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 2.2.9.812

    Pros

    Appears to be blocking all social and companies while I'm on line. It shows a graph that can be opened anytime to see what is being blocked. It doesn't seem to interfere or conflict with other programs running.

    Cons

    Really no proof it is working; no names given for what it is blocking. Haven't had it long enough to find out if something goes wrong over time.

    Summary

    Since it's free, it can't hurt to run it and hope that it's doing what it says it is, as long as it doesn't become incompatible and cause problems.

    "Great for Some Online Peace of Mind"

    December 14, 2013  |   By drbb

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 2.2.9.812

    Pros

    Does its job. Easy to use. Seamless; no problems encountered with other extensions or web apps. Provides user with control over what to block. Latest version (3.1.1030) has improved interface.

    Cons

    None that I can identify.

    Summary

    I have been using DoNotTrackMe (formerly DoNotTrack Plus) for over a year, and I think it is fabulous! Why do I think so? First, when I click on the DoNotTrackMe for Firefox cross-hairs icon on the navigation bar it it lets me know, in real time, which websites and social networks it is keeping from tracking my travels around the web. Second, it was easy to set up and once it was operational, I soon forgot it was even there.

    DoNotTrackMe is also flexible. It easily lets users block or unblock tracking by specific websites and social networks. I also like the clean interface introduced in the latest version (3.1.1030).

    For what it worth, I have noticed a slow, but continuing reduction of junk and potentially dangerous emails in my spam folder. I can't say that DoNotTrackMe is the only reason for this; however, I do believe it is part of the reason and it gives me additional peace of mind when I roam the web.
