+ - Yahoo to Implement Do Not Track->

Submitted by Trailrunner7
Trailrunner7 (1100399) writes "Yahoo has decided that it's now time to start implementing a Do Not Track system across its various Web properties. The company is one of the last large Web content providers to officially commit to using a DNT technology, and Yahoo said that it plans to have the system implemented by early summer.

Yahoo officials said that their Do Not Track implementation has been in development since 2011 and that it will be a simple way for consumers to turn on the DNT option. In most DNT implementations, which typically exist in browsers, users simply click on an option in the browser's settings to tell sites that they don't want to be tracked. What that does is instruct the browser to send a specific header to each site that includes the user's DNY preference."
