The Anti-anti Tracker Chrome Extension

Posted on November 19, 2018

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.
