Description

Instead of keeping lists of what to block, Privacy Badger learns by watching which domains appear to be tracking you as you browse the Web.

Privacy Badger sends the Do Not Track signal (https://www.eff.org/issues/do-not-track) with your browsing. If trackers ignore your wishes, your Badger will learn to block them. Privacy Badger starts blocking once it sees the same tracker on three different websites.

Besides automatic tracker blocking, Privacy Badger removes outgoing link click tracking on Facebook, Google and Twitter, with more privacy protections on the way.

To learn more, see the FAQ on Privacy Badger's homepage (https://www.eff.org/privacybadger).


Permissions Required
====================

* Read and change data on all websites you visit:

This is so that Privacy Badger can detect and block trackers on websites you visit. We are not ironically (or unironically) spying on you!

* Change your privacy related settings:

This is so that we can turn off some privacy-invasive defaults Chrome ships with.


Changelog
=========

## 2019.9.23
* Added helpful text to popup on special browser pages like the New Tab page
* Fixed pixel cookie sharing detection being broken by First-Party Isolation in Firefox
* Fixed major issues with Service Workers-powered sites like Gmail and Twitter
* Fixed various other site breakages
* Improved translations (Simplified Chinese, French, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian)

## 2019.7.1
* Added cookie pixel sharing detection. Privacy Badger now records tracking by images with querystrings that contain first-party cookie data. This catches Google Analytics.
* Removed display of non-tracking domains from the popup by default. Hiding domains that Privacy Badger does not consider to be tracking should reduce self-inflicted Web breakage.
* Enabled Facebook link unwrapping on messenger.com
* Fixed various site breakages
* Added Catalan translations
* Improved translations (Bulgarian, Traditional Chinese, Persian, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, Swedish, Ukrainian)

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
