Disable FLoC 1.0.0
The Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) is Google’s latest tactic for tracking users across the web. This tracking works even if you have cookies disabled! They say the data is anonymous and safe, but, we’ve heard it all before. The only safe way for Google to handle user data is for Google to not handle that data in the first place. This plugin sets an HTTP header that disables FLoC tracking for your ClassicPress site, giving your site visitors added privacy on the web.
Why is this important?
Disabling FLoC is not a method to preserve our own privacy; it’s a method for enhancing the privacy of our site visitors. This plugin sets a header that prevents Google from tossing people into bins of interests (cohorts) such that they can be granularly (and even egregiously) targeted with who-knows-what (products, propaganda, etc) later. As history has shown, even anonymized data isn’t ever actually anonymous – and Google shouldn’t have this data.
Download Disable FLoC 1.0.0.
Activate and Go
Simply activate the plugin and it will set the appropriate header for your site. There are no settings screens and no documentation to wade through. Set it and forget it.
