Summary

Simple Ping Blocker blocks websites from tracking the links you visit through hyperlink auditing.

Hyperlink auditing involves the creation of links that ping a specific URL when they are clicked on, allowing the creator to track link clicks.

This is achieved through HTML by adding the attribute "ping=[url]” to a link() , where URL is the link that is used to track clicks.

Simple Ping Blocker does not remove the ping attribute in the DOM, but rather blocks all requests of type ping.
