Does ttrss send referral when clicked on a link within?

Postby kurahan » 07 Jul 2014, 07:43

Hi

Forgive me if this is a dumb question. This is a rather privacy related issue. Does ttrss send any link/click referral when I click on a link in ttrss?

thanks

Your browser sends the referer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_referer), all you could do is use an anonymizer service. I guess that could be done by a plugin if you wanted to write one.

Or "simply" access your tt-rss installation via https only. (Browsers don't send referrers when the hosted page is on https and the destination is http.)

Hi

Thanks for all the replies. This is very helpful. I am already using https for my ttrss server. That seems like it takes care of the issue.

yes adding a browser-specific hack implemented in chrome only because of privacy freaks? sounds like an excellent idea

don't bother
