How to disable Http referrer via using Group Policy

    Question

  • Our Forest Functional Level is Windows Server 2012 R2. We can manage Internet Explorer with using GPO, but we want to disable HTTP referrer attribute by using GPO on IE, Google Chrome and FireFox. On Chrome, we can disable http referer by using Referer Control add-ons and on FireFox we can edit by using about:config and changing the value 0 network.http.sendRefererHeader.

    I need to know how this can be possible to disable by using Group Policy.

    Thank you.

    Chrome has it´s own admx/l files to manage settings, but AFAIK to
    disable http referrer you need a plugin.
     
    To configure FF with GPO, you need to change the distribution to
    Frontmotion. They moved all *.js settings into registry. If it inside
    "about:config" it will be inside the Frontmotion FF admx.
     
    AFAIK, IE can not disable http referrer?
     
    Group Policy is not magic. GPO can only handle and control things, that
    are supported, developed and integrated by the vendor.
