GitHub joins the anti-FLoC bloc, won’t support Google’s new tracking tech

Google’s decision to replace third-party cookies with its new Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) system has not been well received by major tech companies. From browsers to search engines, many services have publicly committed to blocking the technology and the latest company to do so is GitHub.

In a post published on Tuesday, GitHub informed users of the addition of an HTTP header that would block FLoC on the code hosting platform. The HTTP header for github.com as well the alternate domain github.io return both return the header“Permissions-Policy: interest-cohort=()”. Where the average user is concerned, Google’s FLoC tracking will be blocked on any website or webpage hosted on these two domains.
