GitHub Privacy redacts dates on GitHub. You can choose the level of redaction. Data privacy and protection has become a big issue nowadays. Not everyone is confident in sharing their data and not every data shown is necessary for others. This extension enables the user to find out how detailed they need to see information regarding timestamps on GitHub. Is it really necessary to see dd/mm/yy hh:mm:ss or would it be sufficient to see dd/mm/yy or even mm/yy for commits and issues. Timestamps shown on GitHub can be changed by this extensions. Via the settings you can decide on the level of granularity by only changing the seconds, minutes, hour or month. As a User of our GitHub Privacy browser extension, you can choose to participate in our study about timestamp precision demands. The aim of this study is to gather insight into users’ reception and interaction with date and time information about user events displayed throughout GitHub’s User Interface. This insight will later on inform the potential for data minimization regarding such event timestamps. The participation in our study is voluntary and you are free to use the extension without participating. Unless you opt-in, no data will be collected or sent to our servers.
