Privacy Settings



  • When I looked at Settings: Privacy there is a check box that says "Third Party Services" who exactly are they? Is it all Google services references? Under "Do Not Track" is "Ask websites not to track me", and "Report Diagnostics". What does Report Diagnostics do? is it worth having these boxes checked?

    The Services you can control are listed under that heading.
    The first two are Google, the others depend on which search engine you are using (See Tools / Settings / Search).

    Ask Websites sends a request - there is no guarantee that websites will honour it :whistle:
    But they may :P

    Report Diagnostics should be sending info to Vivaldi (but there may be some things reported to Chromium as well as Vivaldi uses their engine).
    If you are very concerned, just disable it.
