When you browse the web, small beacons (trackers) are spying on your online activities. Even though such trackers are invisible, they collect information about you such as which pages you visit, which buttons clicked, and what text you typed. This information is often used to show you targeted advertisements and may require you to pay a higher price during online shopping depending on the collected information.
Did you know websites can track you by your browser extensions and web logins?
To check the websites you are logged in, our experiment requires that the third party cookies are accepted. Please activate third-party cookies in your browser (and don’t forget to block them after the experiment!).
It seems that the signatures for the extension detection have not yet loaded. Please wait a couple of seconds and try again! If the error persists, try reloading the page and check your network connection!
The browser extension signature database was last updated on N/A, and the web login check was last maintained on N/A.
We are grateful for the authors of the following publication, who shared their code and signature database for Chrome browser extension detection:
