FLoC (Federated Learning of Cohorts) is a new proposed feature Google is rolling out in its Google Chrome browser. This
feature is downright [https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/03/googles-floc-terrible-idea terrible step against the privacy]
of users, and this tiny plugin tries to help mitigate it by setting a
Permssions-Policy: interest-cohort=() header
to ask Google Chrome to FLoc Away.
- Upload the downloaded plugin directory to
/wp-content/plugins/directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin from the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
- You are all set! There is nothing to configure. Your site will emit necessary headers to FLoC Away.
Does this block all ads on my site?
No. This plugin only sets a
Permisssions-Policyheader to specifically disable FLoC feature. It does not block anything.
Impact on other browsers
All browsers that do not support FLoC will simply skip the
interest-cohortclause in the header. Older browsers that
do not recognize the
Permisssions-Policywill simply the header algother.
There are no reviews for this plugin.
