Deploying Tracking Protection List to enterprise machines IE11 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I noted from past resources that IE9 ADMX previously came with the ability to manage tracking protection lists through GPO. It looks like this functionality has since been removed and we are now only able to enable or disable the tracking protection function entirely through GPO.

    If there any way to deploy pre-populated tracking protection lists to enterprise machines? Either through GPO, SCCM build process, registry entry etc?

    Thank you.

  • Hi DunkG,

    After a deep research ,I haven`t found any useful method to make it as we did for the Internet Explorer 9 .However ,I found it is combined with two parts .The registry keys and the TPL files located in the user profiles .
    Here is a link for reference:

    Edit or Create Tracking Protection List in Internet Explorer

    I found a convenient way from my machine to get a tracking-protection-list.I found this option in my Internet Explorer 11 "Get a Trackong Protection List Online".You can have a try .

    There's some discussion, and a good article by Alan Burchill, which suggests that IE9 never really implemented configuring TPL the way you want it:

    After a very small amount of web searching, I didn't find any useful methods (but I didn't search very long)
