Disable Google's FLoC on Sinatra
August 2, 2021 — Ulysse
Google’s new technology, FLoC, is quite intrusive according to the EFF. Hence I strongly suggest against, as already it is disabled by Wordpress (2/5 of the web), and in discussion to be disabled by default on Rails.
To do disable FLoC for your users on Sinatra, it is quite easy:
before do # Disable google's intrusive FLoC. # See: # - [TL;DR](https://andycroll.com/ruby/opt-out-of-google-floc-tracking-in-rails/) # - [No link to analytics](https://usefathom.com/blog/google-floc) # - [main reference](https://amifloced.org/) headers "Permissions-Policy" => "interest-cohort=()" end
