  • 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

    Free 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.
