Stop Sending Your Web Browsing Analytics to Google

Posted by William Diaz on August 17, 2010


Google offers a browser add-on that prevents them from collecting data on the web sites you visit. However, you can do this in IE natively, without the need of Google’s add-on.

  1. In Internet Explorer, open the Tools menu and click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Security tab and then click the Restricted Sites icon.
  3. Click the Sites button.
  4. In the box at the top, add *.google-analytics.com and push the Add button.
  5. Click the Close button, and then the OK button to dismiss Internet Options.

See the TechNet IEBlog here for details.
