Absolute Garbage Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The Abine team has willfully destroyed DoNotTrackMe in its conversion to Blur. What was once a flawlessly functioning and one-click solution to masking emails from predatory resellers is now a lumbering, half-broken, intrusive tangle of code. Settings do not retain user-set preferences, which means one is constantly fiddling with the add-on to allow elements in pages to load; the email masking and password creation prompts appear when they feel like it, with no reliability; there is a hideous, bright red badge the user cannot get rid of and which is used to indicate all the elements the add-on is blocking against the user's will and preference settings. This thing is completely non-functional garbage and leaves those of us who had been using DoNotTrackMe for email masking reliably for years in need of a new solution. It's baffling the Abine would choose to destroy their product in the way they have.

Hi there, I apologize for the inconvenience. It sounds like you are using a slightly outdated version of our browser extension. If you email me directly at will (at) getabine (dot) com I'll happily provide you with an updated link.

The internet isn't a safe place these days. You always hear about data breaches on the news. Blur is a free extension that's looking to protect your data so that it's less accessible compared to when you normally browse the internet.

I found the extension very easy to install and registration just takes a minute. After that, the extension will automatically run in the background. When you go to make an account somewhere, it'll suggest a random secure password that would be very difficult to break. Best of all, the plugin will save all of your data securely. Ever use the "remember my password" feature on the browser? That's not nearly as encrypted or safe. Blur can also hide your email address and credit card details.

I think this extension is nice to have while browsing the web, so give it a try.

Thanks!

I just tried the yet-to-be-approved-by-Mozilla Version 4.7.1565 of Blur on FF 35.01.

It worked without causing problems, has somewhat finer tuning options than the 2014 version, and fixed some annoying bugs, but I still had to uninstall it because, unlike the old donotrackme, it still does not allow universal unblocking of specific objects.

I utilize Facebook Connect as a universal login id for news commentary on numerous websites, but had to individually unblock this object on each and every website, rather than the universal unblocking the old donotrackme allowed. As a consequence, Blur was simply too disruptive and way too inconvenient to be useful for me.

I have no idea why Blur programmers continue to insist on removing essential functions of donotrackme.

Now I simply rely on the Adbock Plus EasyPrivacy list to block trackers. At least with Adblock Plus I can tailor it to suit my needs.

This app is great. My credit card information was stolen a few weeks ago, and this is the exact plug in I need to help prevent this in the future.

I might give this add-on a go. I have to do some more research on it before I would be comfortable allowing it access to my passwords, but overall it looks very promising.

Only problem i have is i am waiting for a refund on my mask card and it has been about week.

I tried this addon out and I was pleasantly surprised. It makes logging in and registering on websites super easy and make your credentials far more secure. If you are looking for a lightweight addon that is easy to use for your passwords then you need to get this.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried this add-on this morning, and so far it works great! I'm so sick of websites requiring more and more difficult passwords, and while I realize it's a security issue, it doesn't do me any good when I'M the one that gets locked out. The Blur add-on does all the work for me, and it's making my internet browsing so much less stressful. I would definitely recommend this add-on to anyone that has multiple passwords to remember, is tired of being logged out of websites automatically, or is just concerned about internet safety and security.

Not good, not nice, and not something to be recommended for anything sensitive Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Appeared to be an excellent proposition as DoNotTrackMe, but creeping commercialisation appears to be taking its toll in terms of bloat.

Worse, BLUR recently force set a 'passphrase', and in doing so, somehow did away with two thirds of my masked emails. They are no longer in my account.

Worse, I have now just noticed that Blur is holding onto the CONTENT of the emails sent through the masked email facility.

Not nice.

Perhaps counterintuitive, but I would not recommend Blur for anything in the least bit sensitive.

Went from excellent to poor Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Originally, when this application was a simple tracker blocker, it worked great and was non-intrusive. However, after it changed to the whole email thing, it got much more annoying. Now, it's downright terrible. I will not sign up for a add-on that's SUPPOSED to stop people from tracking me. No. End of story. I'm switching back to Ghostery, good day!

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It was good when it was 'Donottrackme'. Since the name change, it has sucked. It always pops up a giant window whenever you are filling any form and you can not even turn it off forever. Its so annoying and frustrating that even ads are better than this crap. On top of all this, it does not even work, websites still track u which u can check by disabling adblock for a while. You will see ads related to what you were searching on Google. Dont waste time with this shit

I LOVE THIS APP!! I've been using this since it was MaskMe & DNTMe and I would be so lost without it. When it was MaskMe I had all my pw's saved in there and it was just so much easier to log into those sites than having to remember a zillion different pw's or just using the same one and taking the chance of getting hacked etc. & with DNTMe I was so blown away to see how many sites were actually tracking you when I was on FB...unreal...I felt better knowing they were blocking them for me. After so many yrs of using them and trusting them I bought the premium service...Masked my credit cards and my phone...I did a lot of Xmas shopping online and never felt more secure knowing that my info was safe and guarded. Don't know why I waited so long to become a premium member but I'll continue to be one because I LOVE this app...I'm lost without it & so happy that I have it on my ios as well :) Keep up the good work Abine ;)

Extremely Useful Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on saves all of your passwords to one place, which is great if you are like me and have to use the "password recovery" function numerous times throughout the week. It also protects your credit card when you purchase things online - a much needed feature these days!

blur is an excellent add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

excellent for storing passwords, and masking the email address u enter each time u register i a site

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. I've always used Firefox and for some reason, forgot to download it with my new PC. After installing Blur, I'm excited about the increased security. Most addons are redundant or annoying. This one is worth checking out.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very handy extension. Stable and smooth so far.

Just Installed Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've used Abine's products in the past and they were pretty good. I just installed Blur and it seems to work okay. I don't like the little pop up prompts when you go over a password boxes. We will see how this works.

Small addon, big security Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There are plenty of addons that address one or two Internet security issues. Blur is the best addon I've come across that covers you with regard to every potential security threat this side of antivirus: anti-tracker, anti-spam, password and email security.

It all works quietly and unobtrusively in the background until you need it, then it taps you on the shoulder, does what it has to do, and gets out of the way. One of those addons that you didn't know you needed until you try it out. Now I've got one addon that does the work of a handful of addons I used to use, and does it as well (or better) than they did.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was a user of MaskMe before they upgraded to Blur and I have to say it just got better. I find it very useful and the support is fantastic, friendly, and patient. What more could you ask for? i'm giving it a five star rating because they deserve it.

Great for the catious users Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add on is great for users who take their security seriously. All the do no track features seem to work flawlessly. This can be a great tool if you get caught in a pop up window hell. The other features such as masking emails can be useful if you don't like filling out the same registration information for websites.
