WordPress will block Google FLoC

Reaction against Google's Federated Learning of Cohorts (flock) συνεχίζεται, με μια πρόταση από τους προγραμματιστές του WordPress Core. Η WordPress θα αποκλείει από προεπιλογή το αμφιλεγόμενο εναλλακτικό αναγνωριστικό στα third parties.

"WordPress has about 41% of the internet - and this community can help fight racism, sexism, LGBTQ discrimination and discrimination against people with mental illness with four lines of code." he says.

For που θέλουν να ενεργοποιήσουν το FLoC (ναι υπάρχουν και αυτοί), η πρόταση αναφέρει ότι θα μπορούσε να προστεθεί ακόμα λίγος κώδικας θα επέτρεπε στο FLoC να ενεργοποιηθεί και να απενεργοποιηθεί από τις ρυθμίσεις του κάθε ιστολογίου.

To make the patch available to users in a timely manner, WordPress developers will treat FLoC as a security issue, rather than waiting for the next major release in July.

"Currently, version 5.8. "is scheduled for July 2021. FLoC will probably be released this month," they say.

FLoC has received strong criticism, particularly for how it will share a summary of recent browser history with .

"Its basic design involves sharing new information with advertisers," he said last week the maker of Chromium-based browsers, Vivaldi;

“You may visit a website about a very personal matter that may use FLoC, και έτσι κάθε άλλος που επισκέπτεστε ενημερώνεται με αυτό το αναγνωριστικό FLoC, που δείχνει ότι έχετε επισκεφτεί το συγκεκριμένο είδος ιστότοπου.”

So the FLoC will have a very serious impact on people living in an environment where they are being persecuted for their personality traits, such as their sexuality, political views or religion.

“Όλοι μπορούν να γίνουν μέρος του FLoC ID σας. Αυτό δεν αφορά πια το απόρρητο, αλλά προχωρά πιο πέρα. Αγγίζει τη for personal safety ”.

The Electronic Frontiers Foundation stated that the era of third party cookies is over and the decision is now whether users will be allowed to decide what information to share or to have a behavioral ID linked to other users.

"Users start each interaction with a confession: I've been here this week, please treat me accordingly."
