Currently all links of extenal websites will send a referer of the current stats view in piwik (date, websiteid, ...), which could be logged by their stat software.
Would be nice to prevent this.
Some ways to do it:
Thanks for the suggestion
Unfortunately it's not very easy and clean, I wish browsers would implement rel='noreferrer'...
Too bad that only webkit support rel='noreferrer'. :( But it could be added to the links anyway.
There is a bug report for firefox about this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=530396
It's possible to see this feature in future. I hope.
Let's do this after Firefox has implemented the feature.
@mattab what's the status on this? Firefox supports for the
rel="noreferrer" attribute since Firefox 33 (although the referrer is still sent when you follow a link through a context menu, for instance when you right click and then click 'Open Link in New Tab').
So, when will Piwik start supporting this?
@nicwortel thanks for the tip. is it now supported by webkit + Chrome + Firefox then? that would be very convincing to start setting rel=noreferrer in all outgoing Piwik links!
@mattab I haven't had the chance to test other browsers, but on my Firefox 33 it seems to work (but, as I said, only when you click the link, not when you right-click it and then click Open Page in New Tab).
