Description from extension meta

Privacy Badger automatically learns to block invisible trackers.

Image from store Privacy Badger
Description from store Instead of keeping lists of what to block, Privacy Badger automatically discovers trackers based on their behavior. Privacy Badger sends the Global Privacy Control signal to opt you out of data sharing and selling, and the Do Not Track signal to tell companies not to track you. If trackers ignore your wishes, Privacy Badger will learn to block them. Besides automatic tracker blocking, Privacy Badger replaces potentially useful trackers (video players, comments widgets, etc.) with click-to-activate placeholders, and removes outgoing link click tracking on Facebook and Google, with more privacy protections on the way. To learn more, see our FAQ at https://privacybadger.org/#faq To get help or to report bugs, please email [email protected] If you have a GitHub account, you can use our GitHub issue tracker at https://github.com/EFForg/privacybadger/issues *** Why does Privacy Badger need to read and change all my data on the websites I visit? *** When you install Privacy Badger, your browser warns that Privacy Badger can “read and change all your data on the websites you visit”. You are right to be alarmed. You should only install extensions made by organizations you trust. Privacy Badger requires these permissions to do its job of automatically detecting and blocking trackers on all websites you visit. We are not ironically (or unironically) spying on you. For more information, see our Privacy Badger extension permissions explainer: https://github.com/EFForg/privacybadger/blob/master/doc/permissions.md Note that the extension permissions warnings only cover what the extension has access to, not what the extension actually does with what it has access to (such as whether the extension secretly uploads your browsing data to its servers). Privacy Badger will never share data about your browsing unless you choose to share it (by filing a broken site report). For more information, see EFF’s Privacy Policy for Software: https://www.eff.org/code/privacy/policy *** Release notes *** 2021.6.8 * Disabled Google's Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC).

  • (2021-07-26) Xtreviouz: Good
  • (2021-07-14) Bahetiya Yiliyaer: Hi, Please fix google account login on websites. I can login via google account after disabling Privacy Badger, but I cannot login with PB active.
  • (2021-07-06) Иван Иванов: Неплохое, наверное, но есть одна большая проблема. При попытке зарегистрироваться где-либо или зайти на сайты через социальные сети, это расширение блокирует доступ к ним. Приходиться его вырубать.
  • (2021-07-05) Rezwan Haque: I had high hope for this extension given their reputation. But it seems that WebRTC prevention of leaking my local IP do not work...
  • (2021-07-02) Philippe Ross: Does what it's supposed to do, rarely needs to have any setting adjusted. The amount of people failing to understand what this does and how to unblock stuff they need instead of turning the extension off like some are suggesting and leaving bad reviews is staggering.
  • (2021-05-23) Mirko M: Super 👍👍
  • (2021-05-17) MRNIKUSHA101: This extention can't detect facebook ads trackers
  • (2021-05-08) Flavio Recchia: Spesso i siti più frequentati sono quelli che autorizzano la maggior parte dei dei badge pubblicitari. La capacità di Privacy Badger di identificare e bloccare i contenuti di questi è sempre stata ottima. Consigliatissimo.
  • (2021-05-06) Shubham Choudhari: Every one should use it
  • (2021-05-04) Ravi Sharma: Just love it, removes the intrusive and excessive ads. Recommended for good web experience to every user.
  • (2021-04-25) Kilowag Magnusson: L'extension marche très bien. Il me semble un peu trop passif quant a Google. J’aimerais qu'on serait capable de déactiver ou activer la liste des sites web globalement.
  • (2021-04-23) Sylvia Wulf: I got this extension quite recently, and while it may be doing what it says it is doing I have also had increasing difficulties with a number of basic utilities suddenly not working - particularly sound related. I can no longer listen to previews of audio books in Chirp, and Soundcloud has stopped playing entirely. Seriously, if these basic functions cannot run with PB in place I will have to delete it and take my chances.
  • (2021-04-06) Dee: works great. but if google is allowing this extension to be on webstore then they must have found a way out to evade the badger and is tracking us.??
  • (2021-03-29) ben snowden: Works OK but needs a snooze feature so you can completely disable the extension for a few minutes to use affiliate links. It is a pain to have to turn it off in Chrome and remember to turn it back on.
  • (2021-03-19) Aditya Sant: Many sites content do not load when this extension is activated. please make it less aggressive.
  • (2021-03-15) Irena Đurić: "Thanks to disclosures from Google Security Team, we are changing the way Privacy Badger works by default in order to protect you better." I think I will pass...
  • (2021-03-13) Carlos Duarte: Excelente!! Hace lo que tiene que hacer. Una barrera mas de seguridad y privacidad.
  • (2021-03-09) Izzy G: good app...will introduce to all of my friends
  • (2021-03-05) BREAKING THE4THWALL: Great extension makes the browser load and render pages so much faster. i think you should make your own adblocker to work along side it that way we can be sure it will be something that won't slow down the page load and render speed.
  • (2021-02-28) Thanasut Vudthivichai: Any alternatives for Tor Browser. Thanks!
  • (2021-02-25) Tim Schuckelt: Works great and is easy to set up.
  • (2021-02-23) 926 504: This. Is. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! eff.org why don't you make more good extensions but it doesn't matter! This is really good! And don't forget to install the HTTPS Everywhere!
  • (2021-02-17) Qwe Lee: This is AWESOME. THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS!!! also everybody go to https://www.eff.org/pages/tools and get the other things created by Eff.org they are really good
  • (2021-02-09) Kevin Capo: espectacular
  • (2021-02-07) allmighty Asian: I don't know witch extension has problems but it's crashing because of (local cdn) again and again in kiwi browser
  • (2021-02-07) User: Great add-on! If it's created by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and recommended by PrivacyTools.io, it's good on my book. If you haven't checked them out, they have other solid privacy recommendations.
  • (2021-01-23) Ugly Guy: love it works like a charm on my browser
  • (2021-01-20) Rafa Lin: Recién instalada y funciona de maravilla.

  • (2020-12-15) Monitor29: Melhor de todas passa nada Pessoal que tá com problemas no lixão do "Chrome" usem O navegador ( Vivaldi+Privacy Badger + Ublock Origin )
  • (2020-12-11) Robin: Bin sehr zufrieden damit!
  • (2020-12-08) Аnаmorf909: Будьте внимательны! Расширение может открывать 80 порт и соединяться с адресом www.download.windowsupdate.com
  • (2020-11-27) Apratim Sen: Very good!
  • (2020-11-18) 歌愛ユキ: n'est pas détecté par les anti adblock permet de bloquer les pubs même sur les sites qui ne fonctionnent pas quand un adblock est détecté, très utile donc
  • (2020-11-14) akun anti track: it's so good for my laptop, because i'm a hacker and i don't know other hacker tracking me or not
  • (2020-11-13) carlosisafk: Infaltable en tu navegador, muy recomendada.
  • (2020-11-08) Kirilo Dmitrovich: Дуже гарне розширення. Брлокуе віддалений скрінінг.
  • (2020-11-08) Nicolas Brunet: Tellement bon que j'en pleure
  • (2020-11-07) Mohammad Hossein Maazallahi: Broke more websites than the DuckDuckGo extension or my ad blocker (uBlock) but provides easy and advanced options to personalize how it works. They also take direct feedback to report that the extension broke a website. In general, I'd totally reccommend. Update Nov. 2020: Had to disable it for now as the extension is interfering with Google Login on other sites, I hope they get to fix it soon.
  • (2020-10-30) Mark Eggers: Starting today, this extension is causing a background 10-15 percent CPU utilization on an i7-8700 CPU system running Windows 10 Professional (latest patches), Chrome 86.0.4240.111, and Privacy Badger 2020.10.7. The only thing that was updated yesterday was my nVidia driver. I've always been a fan of this extension, but for now I have to disable it. It runs so much that the current Google Halloween page hangs and becomes unresponsive.
  • (2020-10-28) Bob Honeyman: Never had a problem. But now, www.cbs.com sees it a an ad blocker. Since I won't turn Privacy Blocker off, I guess I won't watch CBS until I can work out how to use my Raspberry Pi to get around CBS's algorithms.
  • (2020-10-26) Frank: I am glad I found this app! Really good extension. The best part is - it's free.
  • (2020-10-21) Jose Karam: Installed this app and my mac started using a ton of battery. After checking the activity monitor, it showed google chrome draining all its battery. Basically tried to pinpoint the error for days and ended up reseting my whole mac because I was afraid it had virus. After restarting this is the first extension I installed and guess what? After installing Privacy Badger, the draining starts all over again. DONT INSTALL SAVE YOURSELF THE PAIN
  • (2020-10-12) Carrie Mai: A complete must have!😍
  • (2020-10-10) Cool Style: Добрый день! Скажите пожалуйста почему ваше расширение Google аккаунт определяет как заразу? дело в том что с вашим расширением невозможно пользоваться нормально аккаунтом, Google попросту не даёт, постоянно приходят оповещения о подозрительных действиях, через подозрительное приложения. Вот что пишет Google: Обнаружено подозрительное приложение Кто-то мог получить доступ к вашему аккаунту Google через подозрительное приложение. В целях безопасности был выполнен выход из аккаунта на этом устройстве. И просит постоянно сменить пароль. Как это исправить?
  • (2020-10-01) Walter S.: It breaks almost all ecommerce sites I visit — images won't load, shipping calculator won't show, sometimes it breaks the entire page, as if the CSS info hadn't been loaded at all. I just got tired of reporting this problem on nearly every single shopping site I go to.
  • (2020-09-29) Ice Storm: Great extension a necessity performance may vary with each update as to how well it performs real time without toggling the options yourself but the ability to toggle options yourself makes this the ultimate tool for Google Chrome great for advanced users and ordinary users
  • (2020-09-26) Hanna Winiecka: Od wielu lat korzystam z Avast i nie mam problemów z komputerem. Hesia
