The toolbar button lives at the top of your browser and shows you the total number of tracking requests on every page you go to. Green means all the requests on a page are blocked. Gray means some are unblocked. Click the button to see and block or unblock the requests.
The dropdown shows you the number of tracking requests on a page by company. Green or checked means the requests are blocked. Gray or unchecked means they’re unblocked. Click any icon or checkbox to block or unblock requests.
The navbar links to helpful pages – like this one!
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 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) and we don’t recommend blocking them because of the potential to break pages.
The options let you change Disconnect’s behavior.
The dashboard shows you Disconnect’s effect on the page you’re on – the time and bandwidth you saved and the number of Wi-Fi requests you secured. Click the Facebook or Twitter icons to share these stats with your friends.
