Value Description
no-referrer The Referer will not be sent.
no-referrer-when-downgrade The Referer will not be sent to origins without TLS (HTTPS).
origin The sent referrer will be limited to the origin of the referring page ( scheme, host, and port).
origin-when-cross-origin The referrer sent to other origins will be limited to the scheme, the host, and the port.
