Firefox now blocks cross-site tracking by default for all users


Recommended Posts

Via Bleeping Computer at Firefox now blocks cross-site tracking by default for all users:

Total Cookie Protection forces all websites to keep their cookies in separate "jars," thus blocking attempts to track you across the web and building browsing profiles.

First introduced with the release of Firefox 86 in February 2021, this privacy feature was only active until now in private browsing or when users would manually enable ETP Strict Mode in the web browser's settings.

"Total Cookie Protection offers strong protections against tracking without affecting your browsing experience," said Mozilla today.

"Total Cookie Protection is Firefox's strongest privacy protection to date, confining cookies to the site where they were created, thus preventing tracking companies from using these cookies to track your browsing from site to site."

By creating a separate cookie jar for every website, Firefox will automatically block any attempts to use cookies to track the users while they're browsing the web.
