Good... maybe? Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I don't know how to review this. It does a good job of telling me who is tracking me, and so I assume that it blocks them.
However, it also keeps track of how many times.. someone has tried to track me. So I'm ditching lots of small trackers for one giant tracker? I mean, they give out graphic "medals" for "you" having "blocked" (x) number of sites. You can even get a graph of how well you're doing -- so I can only assume that my personal data, at least some of it, is being shuffled off to the people at Albine.
Lastly, I have to wonder why they block individual cookies as they come, rather than just reading the site into a local database and setting up an auto-block system. I don't move around the web enough to have been hit by 9500+ separate people trying to track me.
So the rating? Eh.
We don't track you!
Hey there, and thanks for using DNTMe. Here's the thing: the number of trackers you've blocked, as well as your preferences, is stored locally on your computer. We at Abine don't have access to it; it's not communicated to us at all.
You can verify this fact yourself by using an app that monitors the requests made for your computer's information throughout the day. Two examples of apps like these are Live HTTP Headers or WireChart, neither of which were made by us. Our software makes one request per day to your computer for updated tracker blocking rules. It also checks for upgrades to new versions of DNTMe. You will be able to see those requests and what they entail.
Hopefully this takes you from "good...maybe" to "good...definitely" :)
