Privacy Badger 2020 full offline installer setup for PC 32bit/64bit
Originally released in 2014, this security-focused browser extension has learned how to detect tracking services in websites you visit and offer you both automatic and manual options for handling such tracking requests. For example, with this web browser app, you can monitor the presence of trackers placed by Facebook, Twitter, Google, and other social network and analytics giants, but also the presence of some unknown trackers. Privacy Badger showcases both active and potentially harmful tracking services and domain services that do not appear to track you, with notification icons that signify what level of blocking is used (total block, moderate block, and unrestricted use).
To best take advantage of Privacy Badger’s blocking capabilities, you first need to start using it for a while. During that initial period, It will send additional “Do Not Track” signals to websites you visit, and if they disobey those requests, only then they will be put on the list of restricted services.
In addition to actively blocking aggressive services, It will also remove outgoing link click tracking on Facebook, Google, and Twitter, providing you enhanced online privacy by not allowing those social network and analytics sites to track your online habits even if you are not logged into their servers.
Privacy Badger is 100% FREE for use, and it does not feature any in-app advertisements, upgrades, or subscriptions. It does encourage memberships and donations to the EFF.
Installation and Use
Privacy Badger can be installed in mere seconds by clicking on the “Add to Chrome” button on Chrome Web Store. After installation is complete, a new icon of a small Badger will appear in your taskbar on the top-right section of your Chrome browser. If the app detects badly behaving tracking service, it will block it and showcase a notification number beside Badger Icon. By clicking on that icon, you will be presented with the list of the blocked and allowed trackers, with the option for disabling Privacy Badger on a currently active website, Report Broken site, and access to the Preferences area.
The app is very easy to use, it features a simple and intuitive interface, and allows users to customize the way blocking of data trackers is done for each individual website.
