One of the four addons I get with my FF Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
I'm not much knowledgeable in the most technical details, but I care about privacy. Privacy Badger is one of the four addons I install in my Firefox because of the added layer of security. I like how it "learns" what trackers to block instead of relying on a list - saves up space and it's a better option IMO.
Kudos dev! Keep up the good work!
Back to it's best! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Version 1.8 has brought Privacy Badger back to life and doing what it does as it used to. Great add on. This doesn't block ads but limits/stops unwanted sites tracking your every click on a website. A must have! Surprised there is so small amount of people that use it compared to some of the other crap add ons.
Well done chap!

Works with no user intervention Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
One of the few Privacy Extensions that work well without the user constantly disabling blocking of certain trackers. Brilliant addon, don't see why more people wouldn't use it.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (1.7.0).
Must-Have Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Block any sites tracking you, and doesn't rely on a list. Compared to other add-ons this one is the easiest to understand.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (1.7.0). Cet utilisateur a une revue précédente sur ce module.
Excellent, if you know what you want and what you're doing Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
I was disappointed when the Blur (DoNotTrackMe) extension started letting way too many third party cookies through, so I looked for an alternative. Glad I found this. This is a tracking (and ad) blocker for power users and abusers. It has not only replaced Blur, but Adblock Plus for me as well. I see other reviews here complaining about it not blocking enough or blocking too much and breaking sites. Here's the thing: it's completely customizable! You can change the settings for each and every one of the suspect domains using the sliders. On many sites, I've unblocked most ad servers so the sites can get income. As long as I'm not bombarded with flashing, flickering, animated, video or otherwise annoying ads, I'm fine with that. If some pop up, I can and will change the settings to block them, although finding out which domain is the black sheep takes a little trial and error. And I still have Privacy Badger block the cookies from those ad domains so they can't track me. It's the best of all worlds. I also use the Self-destructing Cookies extension to automatically delete cookies from sites that I'm casually surfing to rather than visiting regularly. Between the two of them, I have tremendous control over what I see and who can track me.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (1.7.0).
causes conflict with Webroot filtering extension Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles
not sure what is wrong but latest version of privacy badger causes Webroot filtering extension not to display correctly when displaying website links, Webroot filtering extension is suppose to show green check marks next to sites well privacy badger breaks this and causes it to only display a white box which is not normal for webroot filtering extension, if you disable privacy badger then Webroot filtering extension returns to normal , not sure what is wrong ?Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (1.7.0).
Useful Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
I've been lucky, and I've never really had an issue with sites breaking.
As they said: it's not meant as an ad-blocker Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
Everything being green/allowed at first is a bit scary, but while it's not immediately obvious, this extension must first WITNESS the trackers actually try to track you (despite Do Not Track settings) before actually deciding to block them, which makes sense.
Unfortunately, in the current state of the web, ads can be loud, obnoxious, animated, bandwidth-eating and even infect your computer immediately just from being loaded. As such, I just feel safer with more paranoid extensions that blacklist things by default.
TL;DR: Privacy on its own doesn't ensure safety. It seems to do what it says, but I recommend not using it on its own.
Also it breaks a couple pages when it blocks things (from what I tried on a different browser), so it could use work at the moment.

Crash on exit with Firefox 46.0.1 Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
Until now very useful. But now crashes on every exit with two error panels. I deactivated it and not more errors.
Thanks and appreciate very prompt reaction of developers (less than 1 hours after my post !). I posted on GitHub and will followup from there.
I'm really sorry to hear that!
I'm one of the Developers of Privacy Badger and would love to help debug this problem, would you be willing to open a ticket on github and paste in the error messages that you're getting? Also let us know which version of Firefox and Privacy Badger you have. Here's the link: https://github.com/EFForg/privacybadgerfirefox/issues/new

The only problem I have is that it works on Firefox, but not on Developer edition and I don't know why. Anyway, on Firefox, it works perfect.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (1.0.5).
