referrerpolicy for Google Fonts


Recommended Posts


Please consider adding referrerpolicy="origin" or referrerpolicy="no-referrer" to the Google Fonts CSS <link> tag. Right now, if one uses a Google Font (the default on IPB 4.2 when I upgraded, certainly), it gives away the full URL the user is browsing to Google. Google claims they are only keeping track of font popularity, so there is no harm in doing this that I can see. If not having a referrer is an issue, referrerpolicy="origin" would solve the 'giving the entire browsing history of all IPB users away to Google' problem while still providing the requesting site.
