- von Firefox-Benutzer 15702762, vor einer StundeBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenPeople 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.

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.
