Privacy Badger

The Privacy Badger is developed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Their mission is to ensure that technology supports freedom, justice, and innovation for all people of the world. It is a non profit organisation striving to defend civil liberties in the digital world. It was founded in 1990 and champions user privacy, free expression, and innovation through impact litigation, policy analysis, grassroots activism, and technology development.

This tool is provided at no cost & it puts your privacy first!

Privacy Badger is an install-and-forget browser add-on that stops advertisers and trackers from secretly tracking where you go and what pages you look at on the web. If an advertiser or other third party seems to be tracking you across multiple websites without your permission, Privacy Badger automatically blocks them from loading any more content in your browser.”

What does privacy have to do with justice?

A lot as it turns out because companies are using the data against users:
