Timely reminder to update your Reddit privacy preferences

Last week, Reddit made a change that allowed the site to track outbound clicks (clicks that take you off the Reddit site) for ‘personalisation’. This change was posted to r/changelog but not to r/announcements, moreover, any new accounts created since the 19th may not be aware of the change.

To opt out from the outbound link tracking, go to http://ift.tt/1BVQptK (edited: thanks toast333!) and unset ‘allow reddit to log my outbound clicks for personalization’ and ‘change links into Reddit affiliate links’.

I’m all about Reddit making the dolla dolla bills, but not by selling us out and especially not with such a shady means as not posting the change to r/announcements.
