Description from extension meta

Get information instantly about websites' terms of service and privacy policies, with ratings and summaries from the www.tosdr.org.

Image from store Terms of Service; Didn’t Read
Description from store “I have read and agree to the Terms” is the biggest lie on the web. We aim to fix that. "Terms of Service; Didn't Read" is a user rights initiative to rate and label website terms & privacy policies, from very good (Class A) to very bad (Class E). This extension shows this rating for rated websites by an unintrusive icon in the address bar. You can click on this icon to get a list with the most important rated points of the website's term of services. Additional the extension will warn you when you visit for the first time a website with a bad rating. Optionally you can notify companies for their grades by sharing on Twitter, if you do not like this feature, simply head over the settings and hide the share button. This extension is open source. You can report bugs or propose new features at https://github.com/tosdr/browser-extensions.

  • (2021-09-30) Nathan Hoffman: Awesome service, everyone should have this. Sure, it doesn't support every website on the internet, but it's free and might just save you from signing up for a service you didn't *really* want.
  • (2021-09-03) Sushruta Bhattacharjee: A must have extension for anyone who gives a toss about data privacy! Just two minor suggestions: make it a bit easier to sign up for contribution (the option is extremely well-hidden), and promote your searx instance a bit (I never knew it existed!).
  • (2021-06-15) Bruno Vinícius180: muito bom mas poderia ter em português brasileiro
  • (2021-05-25) Kunz Péter: Changed the default search enginge without asking... or the need for it...
  • (2021-05-25) Stephen Dodson: removed after the latest update changed my search engine was fine with it up to that point
  • (2021-05-24) Loïc Bazin: It was good, but then it decided it should control what search engine I should use... what about no?
  • (2021-04-18) kevin ataman: needs more info
  • (2021-03-28) Anthony: It works but the servers they use are extremely slow. I feel like this is a dead project and trust me it isn't my internet.
  • (2021-02-27) Dee L.: Very important extension imo. I don't know how to ask the developer a question, but Chrome asks me to change its mode or turn it off entirely every time I start up the browser. Is this on the developer's end, or on Google's?
  • (2021-02-07) User: Absolutely love it! This extension allows you to easily get a feel for how your privacy is treated and by extension how you're treated as a customer whenever you visit a site. Unsurprisingly, it doesn't paint a pretty picture for most large companies. If you haven't checked them out, they have other solid privacy recommendations. This add-on is recommended by PrivacyTools.io and they have many other great privacy suggestions as well. Check them out if you want to be safer online. :)
  • (2021-02-05) UndergrounD: Очень полезное расширение
  • (2021-01-22) Christopher F: I have a feeling this will come in handy. Working fairly good for now. Thank you!
  • (2021-01-04) Felix: Great extension!
  • (2020-12-25) Alexandru BOSS RO: THANK YOU!!!! YOUR NOTIFICATIONS MADE ME TO LOOK AT MY VMWARE AND I SAW SOMEBODY CONNECTED TO MY VNC!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
  • (2020-08-16) Prakhar B: Add more info and make it more great! Saves from reading all jibberish websites throw at you.
  • (2020-03-24) S B: Love this app. Highly recommend!
  • (2019-12-03) Dan: Great idea. Very handy to easily discover how each website treats you (and your data), with just one click. Congrats and well done to those actually reading those T+Cs and summarising for us! Of course ratings can be a subjective thing, but there is huge value in being able to do one click and see a summary of the T+Cs of any website you happen to be on (that TOSDR has rated). As I couldn't easily find an appropriate forum for suggestions, I will write mine here: I think it would be better to see only the dot point summary first, so you can quickly get an overview of a website, and see important points. Put the detailed paragraphs and quotes behind an 'expand' or 'more info' button for each point, or put them all below the full list of dot points. This means people are more likely to see important points, and more different aspects of the T+Cs with one click.
  • (2019-01-24) Maddy Pritchard: Needs to be available for more websites. I understand how long and time consuming it would be to cover EVERY site on the internet (probably impossible, too...) but at the moment hardly any are actually simplified.
  • (2018-09-09) Love everything that duck duck go has suggested. Great company and glad to see they're doing so well. Promise to donate soon as I'm able!!!
  • (2018-08-03) David Lloyd: A year ago I would have given this app a five-star rating, but sometime in the past year, the app has stopped doing anything at all!
  • (2018-07-21) Cheryl Holliday: It does not work at all.
  • (2018-05-30) Dan Atkinson: No longer works. Hasn't been updated for four years, which says a lot.
  • (2018-04-20) Did not work with Strava - https://www.strava.com/legal/terms despite several attempts. Will uninstall
  • (2018-04-19) Didn't work, tried on the updated yahoo terms and nothing popped up. Uninstalled
  • (2018-03-27) Kathryn Mouz: Really good and useful!
  • (2018-01-23) count down: Thanks to duckduckgo.com and creator of the extension
  • (2017-08-23) Marvin Bernal: I was sent here from duckduckgo.com. Thank you for this amazing extension!
  • (2016-12-13) Daniel Farago: This coalescing of legal contractual obligations should be a legal requirement - companies can abuse rigidly precise definitions that are overlooked to non-lawyers (i.e. the common person) to benefit themselves and harm you "with your consent". This add-on will never be a disservice to your life. You don't read the ToS, at least read the summary!
  • (2016-03-03) Dave Land: Very useful community-sourced data. Unfortunately, Google Chrome's latest update no longer allows extensions to put icons in the location bar.
  • (2015-09-28) Jack Kanutin: like the idea. most of the websites i use dont have it (maybe becuase they are european)
  • (2015-06-14) Maj: Fantastic. Vital extension.
  • (2015-06-08) Jiri Novotny: Awesome idea, much needed.
  • (2014-12-16) Juan Castañeda: Muy útil
  • (2014-12-14) Laure Betaille: Great tool!
  • (2014-12-08) Billie Arch: Really good, would absolutely recommend; especially if you're never in the mood to read 6 pages of terms and conditions.
  • (2014-10-01) santosh kumar: reliable [time+trap saving]
  • (2014-08-14) I love this extension. It takes all of that complicated mumbo-jumbo that these websites throw at you and simplifies it into something you can understand.
  • (2014-08-01) Derrick Jones: Great idea, and very helpful. I will share with my friends.
  • (2014-03-31) Michelle Wong: Now everyone knows what have been in the terms of conditions without having to read it taking 76 days!
  • (2014-03-23) Aaron Perry: Kinda sad to see that this was already made. I was just thinking about making this extension earlier today.
  • (2014-01-27) Jonathan Almeida: Needs to be be default on every browser, just like the https warnings we get. Get idea and initiative!
  • (2014-01-04) Zach Primrose: If only more people cared to read. Excellent job!

Latest issues

  • (2021-03-30, v:4.0.6) David Lambert: Updates
    How do I update the extension. It reports that a newer version is available but I can't find a ay to Update it.
  • (2020-09-20, v:2.0.0) Monk Livelong: Stop addon from making my PC beep
    I don't see a way to stop this addon from making my computer beep (without disabling the default beep for everything). Can this be done?
  • (2020-02-07, v:2.0.0) Mike Zarroli: What the extension does.
    Before pushing the button to add ToSDR one of the things that it states that it does is "read your browser history." Why is it necessary to do that?
  • (2020-01-04, v:2.0.0) Michael G: Why is arbitration a bad thing?
    Why is it that if a company forces arbitration, it results in it being a bad thing? If the arbitration company has a record of unfairly picking winners and losers that's one thing, however, i believe you guys should reevaluate that criteria.
  • (2018-05-26, v:1.0.10) Christian Holland: Won't show anything
    When I click on the extension icon, it does nothing. The extension icon is grey.
  • (2018-04-21, v:1.0.10) Mark Wagie: Abandonware
    This hasn't been updated in almost 4 years. Useless and obsolete.
  • (2016-03-03, v:1.0.10) Dave Land: Chrome update breaks ToS;DR
    The latest Google Chrome update (after 48.0.2564.116) no longer allows extensions to put icons in the location bar, which removes so of ToS;DR's functionality.
  • (2015-07-17, v:1.0.10) Pre-fed info or real time?
    Pre-fed info or real time?
  • (2014-11-23, v:1.0.10) Chakotay Miller: Help!
    Every time i try to add extension it says network error :(
  • (2014-09-09, v:1.0.7) Fayyaadh Razak: No rating appearing in the address bar
    I downloaded the extension, but it does nothing. I don't know the cause of this issue, but I would like for it to be fixed. Please fix it soon. The extension is great, but I currently am unable to use it.
  • (2014-08-22, v:1.0.7) Claire Chiba: Not working
    When ever I try to install this app, it just disappears and I cant get it to come back. Is there a way to fix this?
