Removes Ads and the user interaction tracking from content on Facebook™

Image from store Tracking & Ad Removal on FaceBk
Description from store NOTICE: Google is making it increasingly difficult to maintain and publish extensions in their webstore, and Facebook keeps trying to take the extension down, so I may stop updating in chrome at any time. I recommend using Firefox if you want continued support, and it's better for privacy in general. ---------- "Facebook" and "FB" are registered trademarks of Facebook Inc. This extension is neither endorsed by nor affiliated with Facebook. ---------- Please report bugs at https://github.com/mgziminsky/FacebookTrackingRemoval/issues Removes Ads and the user interaction tracking from content on Facebook™. Modified elements can optionally have a custom CSS style applied to them so that cleaned items can be more easily identified. For links, the event listeners on the link and its parents are removed and/or disabled and a proper href is set. For videos on mobile, all Facebook™ event-listeners and custom controls are removed, and the video is simplified into just the bare HTML5 video tag. PRIVACY POLICY: I don't, and never will, collect or send any data to myself or any third parties Explanation of permissions: - Access to facebook.com, messenger.com, and facebookwkhpilnemxj7asaniu7vnjjbiltxjqhye3mhbshg7kx5tfyd.onion is needed for main functionality, in order to work on those pages. - Access to mgziminsky.gitlab.io, more specifically https://mgziminsky.gitlab.io/FacebookTrackingRemoval/*, is used to download blocking rules only - `webNavigation`: Needed to handle cleaning FB interactions that use the browser history API instead of doing a normal page navigation - Firefox: "Access browser activity during navigation" - Chrome: "Read your browsing history" - This is misleading. See https://github.com/mgziminsky/FacebookTrackingRemoval/issues/67#issuecomment-1346953059 Project is completely open source, so you are welcome, and encouraged, to check the code yourself before installing.

  • (2022-04-05) Gabe Elan (A lendület kormányosa): A legkirályabb böngésző kiegészítő, amivel az utóbbi időben találkoztam! Eltünteti a k.szott kilométeres facebook kódokat a megosztott oldalak internetcíméből! Fantasztikus, köszönöm! A tökéletes működéshez ne felejtsétek el bejelölni a beállításaiban a "Remove tracking values from internal links (If something breaks, try disabling this first)" lehetőséget is!

  • (2020-03-11) EWEB TV CHANNEL: Eccezionale davvero, blocca effettivamente tutti gli annunci ma solo su android m.facenook.com yandex alpha con user agent iPad; CPU OS 13_2 safari 14 mobile. Per il pc non funziona. Ho provato ha mettere user agent di chrome, firefox, safari ma nulla. Solo un'estensione tra le molte disponibili funziona su pc, la quale essa non funziona su android.

  • (2018-12-05) Tamás Vig: Works perfect. Thank you!
  • (2018-06-05) Colin Wiens: Seems to offer good options and was recommended by the EFF. I'm not a coder so I don't know its specifics. Some more explanations within the extension would be nice.

    Hi, love this addon on my firefox but I can't install it on chromium. I get this message : Package incorrect. Détails : "Name of a key "—" is invalid. Only ASCII [a-z], [A-Z], [0-9] and "_" are allowed.".
  • (2022-09-27, v:1.10.4) K O: Where is the extension?
    I installed the extension and I can see it in my list of extensions on my Google account, and it is enabled. But when I go to FB, I don't see a logo or link to the extension in my toolbar or on the page. It also seems to do absolutely nothing. All the sponsored posts are there cluttering up my feed.
  • (2022-08-10, v:1.10.2) Patrice Vieira: impossible to install more recent versions
    Hello, I'm on version 1.9.3 and it's impossible to install more recent versions (1.10.1, 1.10.2). I am using Vivaldi browser which works fine with version 1.9.3.
  • (2022-06-14, v: Charles: Onion site
    Why does this extension need permission to access "*://*.facebookwkhpilnemxj7asaniu7vnjjbiltxjqhye3mhbshg7kx5tfyd.onion/*"
  • (2020-06-02, v: Tong Tong: Please update for Chrome version
    Chrome version not works. pls update
  • (2020-05-09, v: Lord Woffle: Is this still being updated?
    I have been receiving ads since facebook changed their look several months ago, and was just wondering.
  • (2019-12-05, v:1.7.1) Cody Shan: News feed showing the same posts
    Hi there, and thanks a lot for this extension. I don't know if it is really related to your extension but since I used it, Facebook keeps showing me the same posts over and over all day in my News Feed. They change each day, but even reloading the page several times in a row shows me lots of posts and news I've already seen several times, even if they have no new comments or likes, making FB a bit useless. I've tried two times to disable the extension and after a day without using it, Facebook finally shows me different posts each time I connect to it. But as it takes a bit of time to show any difference, I'm not sure it's caused by your extension. But here I've enable your extension yesterday, and I'm back to seeing same posts over and over. Is it possible that Facebook shows us the same popular posts on purpose if it detects that you haven't seen any of its sponsored content?
  • (2019-05-27, v:1.6.7) Suresh Bachu: Why does the extension need browsing history?
    Hey Please let us know why do the extension need browsing history, if it was designed to just work on fb pages.
