The best privacy extensions for Chrome I used


  • Adblock Plus

    Free Mac Windows Linux iPhone Chrome OS ... BSD iPad Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer Vivaldi Browser Chrome Safari Yandex.Browser Opera Firefox Website

    Adblock Plus is a free extension that allows you to - among other things - block annoying ads, disable tracking and block domains known to spread malware.

    Available for Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Maxthon, Opera, Safari and Yandex, Adblock Plus uses filters that you choose to block all unwanted elements.
    Small Adblock Browser iconAdblock Browser , a mobile web browser with Adblock Plus built-in, is also available for Android and iOS.

    Adblock Plus itself does not block ads by default. However it does unblock 3rd party ads who pay to be included on our whitelist via EyeO, our parent company.

    Adblock Plus requires the user to "tell" it what to block by adding external filter lists. Filter lists are essentially an extensive set of rules that tell Adblock Plus which elements of a website to block. Our default whitelist is enabled by default overriding all blocklists by default.

    You can add any filter list you want. For example, block tracking or malware. You can also create your own filter lists. Almost all filters are open source, therefore many filter lists have been created by Internet users.

    You can "opt" out of our unblocking whitelist by disabling it manually.

    Filter lists enabled by default include:

    An ad-blocking list selected based on your language (EasyList)
    The Acceptable Ads list

    These are enabled to get you started. You can remove them or add others - it's up to you.

    EasyList corresponds to your browser language and is aimed at disabling ads that are considered to be intrusive by our community of users. Eyeo GmbH did not draft EasyList and therefore has no right to, or control over, its content other than our default global whitelist. Visit the EasyList Community for more information.

    The Acceptable Ads whitelist displays ads that comply with the acceptable ads criteria. The list is maintained by Eyeo GmbH.

  • HTTPS Everywhere

    Free Windows Linux Android Android Tablet BSD ... Vivaldi Browser Chrome Yandex.Browser Opera Chromium Firefox Website

    HTTPS Everywhere is a browser extension produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It encrypts your communications with a number of major websites.

    Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site.

    The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by rewriting all requests to these sites to HTTPS.

    HTTPS Everywhere can protect you only when you're using sites that support HTTPS and for which HTTPS Everywhere includes rules.

  • Ghostery

    Freemium Mac Windows Linux Android iPhone ... Android Tablet iPad Microsoft Edge Vivaldi Browser Chrome Safari Yandex.Browser Opera Firefox Website

    Ghostery sees the invisible web - tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons. Ghostery tracks the trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity.
    After showing you who's tracking you, Ghostery also gives you a chance to learn more about each company it identifies. How they describe themselves, a link to their privacy policies, and a sampling of pages where we've found them are just a click away.
    Ghostery allows you to block scripts from companies that you don't trust, delete local shared objects, and even block images and
    iframes. Ghostery puts your web privacy back in your hands. Ghostery has different builds for the different browsers.

  • Privacy Badger

    Free Mac Windows Linux Chrome Opera ... Firefox Website

    Privacy Badger is a browser-add on tool that analyzes sites to detect and disallow content that tracks you in an objectionable, non-consensual manner. When you visit websites, your copy of Privacy Badger keeps note of the "third party" domains that embed images, scripts and advertising in the pages you visit. If a third party server appears to be tracking you without permission, by using uniquely identifying cookies to collect a record of the pages you visit across multiple sites, Privacy Badger will automatically disallow content from that third party tracker. In some cases a third-party domain provides some important aspect of a page's functionality, such as embedded maps, images, or fonts. In those cases Privacy Badger will allow connections to the third party but will screen out its tracking cookies.
