Too intrusive. Unless you sign up, it nags you each time you launch Safari by putting up tabs. I uninstalled it.

Blur (formerly DoNotTrackMe) interferes with the function of far too many Web sites, breaking links, slide shows, embedded video, and other features. I don't know if this is inherent with this type of tracker-blocking software or if it's something Abine could address. In any case, it's extremely frustrating. Just a heads-up.

IMPORTANT! Immediately after installing you should click the toolbar icon, click the gear icon in the top right corner of the DNTM window and deselect "send anonymous data." You may want to uncheck other items such as "show medals" and "show weekly report." If you choose not to do it now you'll likely do it later as the medals are extremely annoying!

It looks like Abine is transitioning this product... the plug-in is only available for Chrome/Firefox now (as of this posting) and it looks like you need to create an account with them to access the download for the browser and other features... I guess we'll see where this goes. Other than that, this has been my go-to privacy plug-in for a few years now and continues to work okay in Safari (if you still have a copy of the plug-in).

My comments and reasons are already listed below. I'm simply used to commenting when I have not yet tested a new version. I dumped this plugin about two subversions ago as a major privacy risk.

DO NOT USE! Although this plugin may screen out other trackers, there are security sources (and other plugins) that all show that this plugin is a tracker itself. Tracking can just as effectively be blocked by such as Ghostery and AdBlock (not AdBlock Plus).

3.1.1064 is the current version of DoNotTrackMePlus. However, there are problems going on with Abine, the developer, such that: 1) One of their website SSL certificates is bad, listed as being from an invalid issuer. This is unforgivable from the likes of Abine, a security company. BROKEN! 2) The new version shows up in the Safari Extensions preferences list, but WILL NOT download to install. BROKEN! 3) If you attempt to download the Safari extension from the Abine website, which is the default behavior via MacUpdate, the website inexplicably can't detect what version of Safari you're using, instead thinking it is 'Safari 0.0', like that makes any sense. Therefore, it REFUSES to let you download the extension. BROKEN! 4) Therefore, you're forced to click on their small print link labeled "Think we got your browser version wrong? Click here to start the download (at your own risk)." < --SCARY. I can verify that after you've managed to bypass the above mess and downloaded the thing, it DOES install and DOES work going back to at least Safari version 6.1.1. I have not verified if this new version will install and work in anything previous to Safari 6.1.1. ∑ = Hey Abine! Get your act together please!!!

Has issues with some sites. Try using CNET with it outside the USA and you'll see what I mean. While I really love this, it can be a real pain. It really is in need of some updates.

No support for SeaMonkey. For me, that's a FAIL!

Uhm, what's the advantage of this over Ghostery? Seems that Ghostery has a larger database and stronger service off the top here, but I'd be interested in bolstering my privacy if this somehow complements or is superior.

I could not imagine life without this extension now. Along with Cookie.app and a couple other Chrome extensions (such as HTTPS Everywhere and LastPass) I have very good internet privacy now. I tried Ghostery and this is better. What’s the difference between Ghostery and DNTMe? Ghostery and DNTMe are both simple, functional "starters" for people who want to protect their privacy online. Some comparisons: DNTMe is faster, based on page load/processing times. DNTMe generates fewer Javascript errors on the top 10,000 websites than Ghostery does. Abine is a consumer privacy company that’s funded by our customers and our investors. In contrast, the company that owns Ghostery (Evidon, formerly Better Advertising, Inc.) is funded by advertisers and businesses paying them for ad data and compliance. Unlike Ghostery/Evidon, Abine doesn’t collect any of your data when you use DNTMe. All we see is that a download occurred, which lets us know how many users we have. You can start using DNTMe with one click and no exchange of your personal information. Ghostery collects data from users who opt into GhostRank. https://www.abine.com/donottrackme/faq/#q29 I have no affiliation with the developer I just love the extension and appreciate very much that it's free.

The download link still goes to DoNotTrackPlus, not to the current DoNotTrackMe extension (at cnet download.com)

I prefer the open source solutions instead of companies like albine and evidon. Try "collusion" which can be found here: https://disconnect.me/tools and the source found here: https://github.com/disconnectme

NEW NAME: Do Not Track Me. The current version of 'Do Not Track Me' (no longer named 'Do Not Track Plus') is 2.2.5.1204. I'm looking at it. That is the version number. IMPORTANT: - The old 'Do Not Track Plus' does NOT automatically update to this new, renamed 'version'. You have to do it yourself. - For inexplicable reasons, this update, when installed, does NOT show up in Safari's extension list. Instead all you see is the OLD version listed, which is ludicrous. It must be a coding bug. THEREFORE: I personally recommend: 1) Go into the Extensions list inside the Safari Preferences, choose 'Do Not Track Plus' (the old name) and hit its 'Uninstall' button. Make sure it is GONE. 2) NOW install Do Not Track Me. It will show up properly in the Safari Extensions list. (0_o) Why does this stuff have to be hard?!

This is supposed to be version 2.2.5.1203, However, after installation it claims to be version 2.2.1.661. Why is that? What is that?

DNT+ doesn't support SeaMonkey, and according to Abine, they're not planning to support it. Major suckage. Seems to work OK in Safari, but I just installed it, so I'm not going to rate it or review it yet.

I've kind of flip-flopped between DNT+ (or Privacy Suite) and Ghostery in Firefox and Chrome. Honestly I don't see much difference and they both work well. The biggest issue I have are losing the ability to read/make comments to articles on some web sites and then figuring out which tracker to disable.

The current version is 2.2.0.510. I don't understand why this Safari extension continues to be called '1.0'. It is not. This continues to be 5 star software. But it takes getting used to and is mostly for geek level users. If you are serious about maintaining your right to personal privacy, as opposed to Marketing-Morons abusing you by surveilling you all over the Internet, this extension is EXCELLENT! I also highly recommend using the Ghostery and JavaScript Blocker extensions as well as the Cookie app, which is the full paid upgrade from the free Safari Cookies extension. They all take an investment in time to learn and use. But I find them to be well worth it.

At each site I've visited since installing DNT+, both it and Ghostery have indicated that they were blocking the exact same number of "bugs," the difference between the two being that Ghostery identifies them while DNT+ merely enumerates them. On that basis, I'll stick with Ghostery for the time being.

It would appear that this is actually 2.2.0.509, not version 1.0 as the item's version — so the listing appears to need a minor update. To verify this I downloaded (used "trust me" since it didn't recognize the newer Safari) and expanded the extension. Given that I'm already running 2.2.0.510 of this extension, I'm not certain why it wouldn't be what gets downloaded from the developer's web site instead, but that's a question for the developer.

This takes you to their site for the download. Then, it tells you that it doesn't work with Safari. If you use Safari, don't waste your time with this.
