Secure your browser from trackers with Privacy Badger

Privacy Badger prevents third-party trackers and advertisers following your web activity across multiple sites. Privacy Badger is an excellent alternative to other blocking extensions, such as Ghostery, giving users a range of features in one application. While other blockers require the manipulation of custom settings to block non-consensual trackers, Privacy Badger does this intuitively.

A blocking extension with a twist

On the surface, Privacy Badger functions like any other ad blocker: it works by instructing your browser to refrain from loading content from any given source. Underneath its discreet user interface, however, something very innovative is happening. Rather than coming loaded with a library of trackers to block when you install the extension, Privacy Badger analyses your own browsing activity as you use it, looking for trackers that appear and eventually learning to block them if they pose a threat.

That’s the badger

The good news is that the extension does not share your browsing history with the developers, but it does take a bit of time to become wholly effective. If you are looking for a one-stop privacy extension that is compatible with the major browsers, look no further.

PROS

  • Incredibly easy to use.
  • Great community behind the extension.

CONS

  • Requires prolonged use to be wholly effective.
  • Extension must be disabled to view some content.
