- af ForeFix, 6 timer sidenBedømt til 5 ud af 5To the people who write and spread negative reviews about the "Access IP address and hostname information" permission, please go read the patchnotes that the developer take the time to write for us for each release (+githud issues for more infos) instead of ranting and spreading misinformations. This new permission is used to uncloak hidden nasty new ways of tracking, and reveals tons of hidden CDNs in the process.
uBlock is an open source, featured extension, and Firefox developers work very closely with its developer (guess which is the first extension supported by Firefox Preview on Android?). There are plenty of contributors, meaning the code is audited by many people.
Honestly, I'm glad we have an extension like uBO with so much security and privacy features & vigilance, and actively developed through all those years.
Kudos to the main dev and all the contributors. Thanks for helping us with your hard quality work!
- af Firefox-bruger 15702762, 8 timer sidenBedømt til 5 ud af 5People should really do more research before they write reviews. The new version is asking for "IP address and hostname information" due to a Firefox update that makes add-ons display this wording if they use the DNS API. It does not actually collect your machine's IP/hostname, contrary to what other people are claiming.
- af H0sv1R, 14 timer sidenBedømt til 1 ud af 5Why exactly do you need my IP address and host? Why Your addon worked fine before without this permissions? WTF?! Are you selling this information to someone? Anyway reported and removed!
- af Firefox-bruger 15701315, 19 timer sidenBedømt til 2 ud af 5Did and extensive testing of uBlock after the new permissions. I also compared with the previous version. The conclusion: Previous versions of uBlock did NOT track your IP and/or device. This new version that request new permissions, DO use your host name and access your IP.
There has been a lot of speculations about this recently. I have no idea what happened with uBlock, so I choose not to go into that. I can, however, confirm that there is data mining going on with this version. What happens with the user information (IP address, Host information / Name and Device information) I have no way to know from the tests.
