Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC)

Introduced in GitLab Free 13.12.

Federated Learning of Conhorts (FLoC) is a feature that the Chrome browser has rolled out, where users are categorized into different cohorts, so that advertisers can use this data to uniquely target and track users. For more information, visit the FLoC repository.

To avoid users being tracked and categorized in any GitLab instance, FLoC is disabled by default by sending the following header:

Permissions-Policy: interest-cohort=()

To enable it:

  1. Go to the Admin Area () and select Settings > General.
  2. Expand Federated Learning of Cohorts.
  3. Check the box.
  4. Click Save changes.
