This has led, in turn, to the rise of referrer spam : the sending of fake referrer information in order to popularize the spammer's website. Question feed.
Controlling the ‘referer’ header Hacker News
I want to see who is including it on their site. I assume the functionality is pretty much the same.
Retrieved There are two situations in which you would want to control the Referer header. However, if you want to manipulate that value, you should set it to a variable first.
The request may include the referer field, which indicates the last page the user was on the one where they clicked the link.

|Where exactly is the page request I'm supposed to click on?
I'm building a end to end encrypted chat platform in JS I'm aware of the risks here it's a toy project and I might have to use an open redirect to prevent urls from leaking out of messages before they are clicked.
Per comments below in case they get buried this is what I've discovered about Chrome's built-in "referrer-finding": I need to go to Resources, then choose the individual page or file, then choose Headers It doesn't appear to work correctly for pages that were opened by right-clicking a link and choosing Open in New Tab or Window. The classical solution is to use a intermediate redirector that masks the original source.

Alternatively you can choose to disable the Referer completely.
You can't have control over that, just trust that it's going to work according to what is specified in the standard. Hide the Referer by redirecting through an intermediate page.

Ask Question. Pass information to forms If you have a link on your site for people to report problems with the site itself, knowing the referer can be very useful.
Click on the "Reload the current page" button of the web browser to refresh the page. Also, if you use uMatrix, you can choose to spoof the referrer string of third-party requests.

Just keep in mind that this is still the client side sending you some information, so it'll always be up to the browser to send you something that is correct. This can, in turn, cause problems: some web servers block parts of their website to web browsers that do not send the right referrer information, in an attempt to prevent deep linking or unauthorised use of images bandwidth theft.
That way, you keep almost all the advantages of the 'Referer' but at the same time fix almost all the privacy issues. I've posted a screenshot up in my original post of what I see when I open developer tools' resources tab there is no network tab.
If it's not, is there an extension I can use to get this info?
