is_do_not_track()

Determine if the “Do Not Track” request header is present from the browser.

PHP July 24, 2018

Usage

PHP
nebula()->is_do_not_track()

Parameters

This function does not accept any parameters. Is this incorrect?

Additional Notes

This looks for the HTTP header “HTTP_DNT” which may not be present in Microsoft Edge even when DNT is enabled. This feature, while technically supported in all browsers, is not consistently implemented across them yet.

Remember: A return of “false” means the browser is allowing tracking. A return of “true” means the user has requested not to be tracked.
