|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000200: Comscore Beacon / Google Analytics|
|Description||I have the Ghostery extension installed in Chrome that tries to block services that track users on the web.|
It tells me that on my own Friendica server a Comscore Beacon and Google Analytics try to track me.
I don't like that.
Is there an easy way to deactivate this tracking without breaking git updates?
In my opinion, this shouldn't be present at all.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Or is that maybe coming from stuff that was oembedded?|
|it seems to be coming whenever a vimeo video is embedded in a post, tony baldwin post here http://frndk.de/display/tony/257182 [^] triggers the ghostery notice but Vasudeva post here http://frndk.de/display/copyninja/250889 [^] does not|
I don't know that we can prevent tracking cookies from embedded media.
In the case of Tony's post, the message arrived (bbcode source) as
which is using normal bbcode embedding and isn't using oembed. There are situations where vimeo will use oembed - I believe coming from Diaspora. In the oembed version we stick the embed code into an iframe. When using the vimeo tag we do not. I'm not certain an iframe would solve the problem - the tracking cookies would still be present, but they would be running under a different browser context.
Ok, I don't think such stuff can be easily filtered.
Unless you see a realistic option to actually do this in the future, I'd say close the ticket.
|I'd like to leave the ticket open. It's representative of a larger issue. People who use web services of many kinds can be tracked. Can we help them? I'm sure we can. Can we completely prevent them from being tracked while they use our service? I don't know. But there are some clever people who may be reading this.|
