Infosecurity: Yahoo has decided to abandon support for do not track (DNT) functionality, despite originally being one of its biggest fans. Beginning immediately, web browser DNT settings will no longer be enabled.
Users can still manage their privacy on the service, however – it will just be a manual process. “We encourage our users to tailor their online experience through the variety of privacy tools we offer within our own platform, accessible via our Yahoo Privacy Center,” the company said in an online statement. “The privacy of our users is and will continue to be a top priority for us.”
