WordPress will block Google FLoC

Reaction against Google's Federated Learning of Cohorts (flock) continues, with a suggestion from WordPress Core developers. WordPress will block the controversial alternative ID in third party cookies by default.

“Η WordPress διαθέτει περίπου το 41% ​​του διαδικτύου – και αυτή η κοινότητα μπορεί να βοηθήσει στην καταπολέμηση του ρατσισμού, του σεξισμού, των διακρίσεων κατά του LGBTQ αλλά και των διακρίσεων κατά των ατόμων με ψυχική ασθένεια με τέσσερις γραμμές ", he says.

For users who want to enable FLoC (yes there are), the suggestion states that a little more code could be added to allow FLoC to be enabled and disabled by the settings of each blog.

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.

Το FLoC έχει δεχτεί έντονες κριτικές, κυρίως για τον τρόπο με τον οποίο θα κοινοποιεί μια περίληψη του πρόσφατου ιστορικού του προτος περιήγησης στους διαφημιστές.

"Its basic design involves sharing new information with advertisers," Chromium-based browser maker Vivaldi said last week.

“You can visit a website for a lot of staff που μπορεί να χρησιμοποιεί διαφημίσεις FLoC, και έτσι κάθε άλλος ιστότοπος 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 , αλλά προχωρά πιο πέρα. Αγγίζει τη γραμμή για την προσωπική ασφάλεια”.

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."
