1. Collects everything you type into the browser w/the extension
2. Can store that data indefinitely
3. May share it with 3rd parties https://www.reddit.com/r/privacy/comments/b0y95z/why_i_removed_grammarly_chrome_extension_and/
Firefox browser for android (I'm using Icecat) always suggests URLs to me as I'm typing into the address bar. I have search suggestions turned off, but it still suggests URLs. Isn't that a bit suspicious?
In order to provide this functionality, the browser must be sending everything you type into the address bar to some server. I feel that this is an invasion of privacy.
Can't even trust a GNU browser... 🕵️♂️
Goddamnit Grammarly ffs
@DuckDuckGo it keeps crashing my Firefox too
I am astounded how quickly people give away sensitive private data. Trust comes too easily. This level of collection shouldnt even be allowed...
@DuckDuckGo this is interesting mostly because I thought this was obvious
@DuckDuckGo why even run Chrome, since it blocks uBlock?
This Mastodon instance is dedicated to mirroring the social media accounts of interesting/useful people and organizations from elsewhere on the Internet. At least until such time as they create their own accounts on the Mastodon network.
If you control an account that is being mirrored here and would like to make changes to how that's done (or not done), please contact Dave Wood via @firstname.lastname@example.org.
