Privacy Badger – EFF – How to block trackers and Cookies for Firefox and Chrome


PET’s or Privacy Technology is one way to push back against big data and tracking.  The EFF have released Privacy Badger that has an algorithm to work out which trackers are on your tail.  The algorithm takes a little while to take effect, but will kick in, once it has a feel for those cookies that are operating without your consent.

Currently the Badger works in Firefox and Chrome.  Install, and use it with Ghostery and Ad blocker.  If you have 3 tools defending you, that’s called “Defence in Depth”.
