This was not required previously. Denying the data opens a new tab saying that they *need* to have this data for some reason. I'd recommend reporting this add-on and the company to Mozilla for review.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Sevenfold6092, 17 days agoI'm really puzzled by the recent design change. The new layout just doesn't seem to work as well. I've had numerous instances where the plugin doesn't load properly unless I'm on a supported webpage. Considering the prevalence of larger monitors with higher resolutions like 2k and 4k, I can't understand the decision to go with such a tiny sidebar. Honestly, I miss the older design a lot. It felt more practical and user-friendly. I hate to say it, but this new design seems somewhat impractical and doesn't have the usability of the previous version.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Ahmad, a month agoModified the privacy terms for the Firefox add-on to engage in malicious activities and collect superfluous user data. Quite ironic for an extension dubbed "PRIVACY." Decided to remove it and will resort to manual information transfer instead.
Requesting my IP address, OS details and my browsing history under the guise of "anti-fraud purposes" is far from truthful.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 14565419, a month agoIt was convenient, but suddenly has a massive permissions grab. NOPE! Seriously, if you are really focused on privacy, then ACT LIKE IT!
PLUS: *any* extension that hijacks the browser and pops up a new tab without your permission and without warning? Instantly removed. You are loudly saying that no matter what I was doing: like giving a presentation to a room full of people using my browser, or rushing to finish writing an article just before deadline in a CMS, is less important than instantly accepting your TOS, WHICH APPEARS IN THE UI OF YOUR EXTENSION ANYHOW. It makes an obnoxiously stupid decision that much worse. Please, please don;t let whoever greenlit this have any input on any user-facing decision ever again.
You do NOT need my IP or OS / etc for "anti-fraud purposes". That is a lie.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 17462200, a month agoGood service with issues. Would suddenly reject my debit card then accept it a few weeks later. Gave up entirely after the second rejection, unfortunately. Using Plaid is not an option with my credit union. The addon itself issued an ultimatum today - accept sending telemetry or uninstall. I shrugged and uninstalled. I recommend you do as well.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 18055876, 3 months agoThey need to create a plug-in that does not need God level rights to read/write all web pages by simply creating a new card and allowing you to copy/paste the information in yourself. Also, I don't trust plug-ins that haven't been updated in over 3 years.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Odie-Coyote, 10 months agoI pretty much have switched to us Privacy.com as much as possible. I usually spend north of $1K each month using my various Privacy cards. Most of the time, everything works fine, but sometimes if Privacy doesn't update the balance from my checking account, it'll show denied for insuficent funds. This can be aggravating, but it's usually fixed by the following day. It hasn't caused a huge issue where the benefits outweigh this annoyance. Knowing that if a site I have payment information gets hacked, and they don't have a card that I would have to replace and then go through the hassle of updating card info on numberous other sites is a huge lifesaver and a massive perk.
