Disable Google Analytics

Paid accounts should be able to disable all Google Analytics (including slides.com’s) on publicly-shared presentations.

Personally, I do not want to expose the people who view my presentations to surveillance by Google/Alphabet, etc. and help them build their World Wide Web-wide panopticon (based on my own crawls, Google Analytics alone gives Google eyes on 64.1% of the web).

As I now use slides.com for my keynotes, I would like to promote your service. Not least because you have a lovely independent business that isn’t a surveillance capitalist. If you could add the feature to disable Google Analytics, I can do so with a clear conscience.

PS. If you’d like to chat about removing Google Analytics completely (and using the lack of tracking on your site/service as competitive advantage in an increasingly privacy-conscious environment, please feel free to ping me any time – aral@ind.ie). If you were to do that, I would be featuring you in my keynotes ;)

We have added a new “Do Not Track” setting which makes this possible. If you turn on the DNT setting, we stop tracking your activity AND the activity of people viewing your content to Google Analytics.

To enable it, visit the account settings page.
