Description

Optimizely uses an iframe to seamlessly sync and preserve experiment variations, behavioral targeting, or event tracking across different domains, subdomains, security protocols, or ports. Because in-app browsers and certain performance monitoring tools like Catchpoint don't fully support iframes, you may decide not to use cross-origin tracking. For more information, see when not to use cross-origin tracking.

Call this API to disable cross-origin tracking and prevent Optimizely from tracking a visitor's data across different origins. You must call this prior to each snippet initialization to disable cross-origin tracking.
