Common tracking sites
Common tracking sites – Facebook, Google, and
Twitter – are shown separately to make them easy to block or
unblock. Click any icon to block or unblock a site.
Other tracking sites
Other tracking sites are shown by category –
advertising, analytics, social networking, and content – and
company. Click any arrow to show or hide the companies in a
category. Click any icon to block or unblock a category. Click
any checkbox to block or unblock a company.
Note: Content contains requests for resources
like YouTube videos and Flickr photos that may track you but
that, without, most people would consider pages broken. This
category and the companies inside aren’t blocked by default
(other filtering apps don’t block them either). We don’t
recommend blocking the category or companies because of the
potential to break pages.
The options let you change Disconnect’s
