Privacy Badger / Description

Privacy Badger blocks spying ads and invisible trackers. It's there to ensure that companies can't track your browsing without your consent.

The extension is designed to automatically protect your privacy from third party trackers that load invisibly when you browse the web. We send the Do Not Track header with each request, and our extension evaluates the likelihood that you are still being tracked. If the algorithm deems the likelihood is too high, we automatically block your request from being sent to the domain.

Nothing can stop the Privacy Badger from eating cookies when it's hungry!

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.
