Last week, I noticed a certain web app I tracked me with a Facebook pixel while logged into the app. I thought this was a bit unnecessary, and I find ad blockers to hamper my workflow.
I also had been learning about Chrome extensions and wanted to build one. So, I built a chrome extension that detects if a site is tracking you with Google Analytics or Facebook’s Pixel.
The extension does this automatically for every site you visit.
If the site is tracking you, it fires 1 event or 1 pageview every 500 milliseconds.
I figured if they want my data - let’s give it to them.
You can download it for free on Github here.
