Several Major Browsers to Prevent Disabling of Click-Tracking ‘Hyperlink Auditing’ As it is considered a privacy risk, browsers previously allowed you to disable this feature

#AceNewsDesk – Apr.08: BleepingComputer: A HTML standard called hyperlink auditing that allows sites to track link clicks is enabled by default on Safari, Chrome, Opera, and Microsoft Edge, but will soon have no way to disable it.

As it is considered a privacy risk, browsers previously allowed you to disable this feature: Now they are going in the opposite direction. Hyperlink auditing is an HTML standard that allows the creation of special links that ping back to a specified URL when they are clicked on. These pings are done in the form of a POST request to the specified web page that can then examine the request headers to see what page the link was clicked on.

The article concludes that “Firefox and Brave win the award” for people who want this click-tracking capability disabled — since “only Brave and Firefox currently disable it by default, and do not appear to have any plans on enabling it in the future.”
