Deprecated

This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes.

The Navigator.doNotTrack property returns the user's Do Not Track setting, which indicates whether the user is requesting web sites and advertisers to not track them.

The value of the property reflects that of the DNT HTTP header, i.e. values of "1", "0", or "unspecified".

Example

console.log(navigator.doNotTrack);
// prints "1" if DNT is enabled; "0" if the user opted-in for tracking; otherwise this is "unspecified"
