Take control of your privacy!
Privacy Possum makes tracking you less profitable. Companies gobble up data about you to create an asymmetry of information that they leverage for profit in ever expanding ways. Their profit comes from your informational disadvantage. Privacy Possum monkey wrenches common commercial tracking methods by reducing and falsifying the data gathered by tracking companies.
- Blocks cookies that let trackers uniquely identify you across websites.
- Blocks (refer) headers that reveal your browsing location.
- Blocks (etag) tracking which leverages browser caching to uniquely identify you.
- Blocks browser fingerprinting which tracks the inherent uniqueness of your browser.
Exodus Privacy lets you know what trackers are embedded in apps installed on your smartphone. It lets you also know the permissions required by any apps on your smartphone. It helps you take your privacy back!
The app can only detect apps installed from the Google Play store.
The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.
The Tor Browser lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained.

This add-on allows you to easily disable WebRTC. You'll also be able to quickly toggle WebRTC back on/off by clicking the add-on's icon.
HMA Proxy is a free web proxy derivative of the HMA VPN service.
This free proxy enables you to hide your online identity and become anonymous for every website you visit. Everyone who has an internet connection has an IP address, which in simple terms is your online 'fingerprint'. If you use this free proxy service, your fingerprint will be hidden and changed to our anonymous one, essentially hiding your real identity, and in most cases you will virtually reside in another country.
HMA free proxy is ideal if you care about your privacy online (identity fraud, hackers spying on your internet traffic, censorship, etc) or wish to bypass internet restrictions such as web filters and blocked websites at your school, work or home.
Free version allows you to access one URL at a time by typing the address into a form.
Websites have increasingly begun to rely much more on large third-parties for content delivery. Canceling requests for ads or trackers is usually without issue, however blocking actual content, not unexpectedly, breaks pages. The aim of this add-on is to cut-out the middleman by providing lightning speed delivery of local (bundled) files to improve online privacy.
• Protects privacy by evading large delivery networks that claim to offer free services. • Complements regular blockers such as uBlock Origin (recommended), Adblock Plus, et al. • Works directly out of the box; absolutely no prior configuration required.
Decentraleyes is no silver bullet, but it does prevent a lot of websites from making you send these kinds of requests. Ultimately, you can make Decentraleyes block requests for missing CDN resources, too.

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.

DNSleaktest.com offers a simple test to determine if you DNS requests are being leaked which may represent a critical privacy threat. The test takes only a few seconds and we show you how you can simply fix the problem.
BrowserLeaks.com is a website that analyses your current browser setup and tells you what information it could find. It then gives you advice about how to improve/fix the leaks.
Your web browser gives away information that could be personally identifiable. You probably heard about cookies and IP addresses, but there's a lot more besides: geolocation, unique font collections, screen resolutions, battery status, operating system and version, local IP addresses, browser plugins, unique hardware identification numbers, and many other things... even the pattern you use to type. This info can be combined to uniquely identify you online and track your activities, violating your privacy. That information can be used for many different purposes, from censorship, to identifying political activists and human rights campaigners, to selling your personal information to advertisers.
There are a number of browser-related technologies and attributes that BrowserLeaks tests. These are:
- IP address
- Flash player
- Java applet
- Canvas fingerprint
- Content filters
- System fonts
- Do Not Track settings
The website then offers you further advice, usually through links to further reading about settings you could change in your browser, or plugins you could install to reduce the amount of personally-identifying data your browser is leaking about you. The website is both referred to and complements other privacy-advice related websites, including privacytools.io and the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Panopticlick.
