How to enable your browser's "Do Not Track" setting

MIDAS (v4.16+) includes a setting which allows users to opt out of having their IP address recorded in the "Recent Activity Log", which keeps track of all user activity taking place within your scheduling system.

The setting makes use of the "Do Not Track" feature which is available in all modern web browsers.

Administrators can decide whether their MIDAS booking system should respect user's individual "Do Not Track" browser preferences via MIDAS Admin Options → Manage MIDAS → Security → Privacy.

The following describes where users may find the setting to enable "Do Not Track" features in their favorite web browser:

Google Chrome

To Enable Do Not Track in Chrome:

Settings → Advanced → Privacy and security → Send a "Do Not Track" request with your browsing traffic.
Apple Safari

To Enable Do Not Track in Safari:

Preferences → Privacy → Website tracking → Ask websites not to track me.
Microsoft Edge

To Enable Do Not Track in Internet Edge:

Settings → View advanced settings → Privacy and services → Send Do Not Track requests.
Mozilla Firefox

To Enable Do Not Track in Firefox:

Tools → Options → Privacy → Tracking → Manage your Do Not Track settings → Always apply Do Not Track.

To Enable Do Not Track in Opera:

Settings → Privacy & Security → Send a 'do not track' request with your browsing traffic.

To Enable Do Not Track in Internet Explorer 11:

Tools → Safety → Turn on Do Not Track Requests.

To Enable Do Not Track in Internet Explorer 10:

Please be aware that due to lack of adoption, the "Do Not Track" draft specification was never recognized as a standard and was actually deprecated in 2019. [1] [2] [3] [4] Browsers and websites are under no obligation to support or implement it, and so its use cannot be relied upon.
