How to block sniffers

2011/09/14

OK, it’s time to block the impertinent sniffers like google analytics. But how? Download a plug-in from google for your browser? I wouldn’t trust anything from google…

Here we go:

On the Mac open Macintosh HD, open the folder ‘private’, then the folder ‘etc’, then open the file ‘hosts’ with a plain text editor and add following line:

127.0.0.1 http://www.google-analytics.com

Save the file as a plain and simple text file without any extension.

On Windoze, search for the file ‘hosts’ and repeat the above described steps.

Simple? You bet!
