On a steady decline Waardering 3 van 5 sterren

Used to be great. Now it demands personal info in exchange for features. Every update changes your settings. Sending analytical data to ghostery is enabled by default. Deciding which trackers you actually want to block is hidden in advanced settings. If you set "block all" and "block new trackers", you still end up with some trackers unblocked.


Thank you for the review!

Updates should not be changing your settings. If you could please reach out to support@ghostery.com so that we can get more information from you to investigate further we would appreciate it.

Also, blocking all trackers and blocking new trackers should not leave any trackers unblocked. If you reach out to us can you also please give an example of a tracker you have seen this behavior on?

Have a great day!

Thanks for app

Thank you for finally responding Waardering 3 van 5 sterren

I work in a technical field as a engineer and I understand that not all pieces of a puzzle always work together. I know that there may not be a solution for the problems I have listed. All I have wanted was a response one way or another about my problems without you deleting them from this site. For that I thank you.

If anything I hope this helps you in the future when dealing with people with real problems. I also have been working with and for hundreds of consumer for many years now, and I can tell you it is not a good idea for any business to remove reviews whether they are written or verbal. You wont be able to please everybody, but at least respond to them. You may find your popularity growing more it you work with people instead of against them. Take it from someone who as been doing this for a long, long time. Sometimes these reviews are real problems. Deleting them only puts you company in a negative light.

I gave you a 3 star rating because you did finally respond to my request and you were seem to be honest about your answer and ghostery of old in my opinion was and is a good addon.

Hopefully you will someday find a fix for my problems using v7. Until then I will continue using version 6.3.2 and maybe look for an alternative (I will go back to ghostery v7 if you do get it fixed.

Again, thank you for responding to my review

Love Ghostery 7

One Of My Essentials! Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

I've found that Ghostery allows for far faster browsing than either of the AdBlock Extensions, the interface is far more aesthetically pleasing, and easy to use.

Loving Ghostery 7 Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

While I liked the update of Ghostery 6, I was annoyed with some of the features they took away. This new UI is excellent, and the addition of the alerts has really sped up my experience.

Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

customize it little bit and there you go. awesome addon.

Ghostery 7 broke everything Waardering 1 van 5 sterren

I've reverted back to a prior version since Ghostery 7 no longer finds any trackers whatsoever on any page it used to find them on. I'm not the first person I've seen have this problem, and yet the support site says that there are no major bugs anywhere.

I also don't appreciate the move from local settings to online settings, and I won't be upgrading to any version that doesn't store my information locally. Cloud backup can be great, but some people just want their information on their own machines and that's it.

Hello bttrflii!

Sorry to hear that the extension isn't working for you! Can you please reach out to us at support@ghostery.com so we can help identify what the issue is? If you decide to write us, can you please let us know if are you running any other extensions along with Ghostery and which version of Firefox you have installed?

Have a wonderful day!

No way Waardering 1 van 5 sterren

Two reasons to avoid this addon, above all
1. It is impossible to setup the addon without connection to their site
2. Leaks to google

I must admit that this addon, with disabled ghostrank, was quite decent before version 6. But with enabled ghostrank it becomes just another tracker, gathering data even from sites without trackers, i.e. all your browsing data.

It is staggering to recognize that your privacy protection software actually notifies Google, the most offensive, intrusive, privacy violating corp on the planet, of the identifiable information about every user of your product.

Discovering that your browser based configuration program uses fonts.googleapis.com, and by doing so provides Google the IP address of every user using your software to minimize the amount of digital stalking they're subjected to, just goes to show how much Ghostery 6 deserves all the recent 1-star ratings (even if you do delete them on a daily basis).

PS: The review made according a guideline.

It stays loyal to its premise. Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Ghostery stays loyal to its premise, and is an amazing add-on in regards to effectively identifying each tracker and blocking them. I tested browsing with only Ghostery turned on, and then with no add-ons at all, and I could tell the difference in page loading times in an instant.

Its tracker library is also very impressive, and gives the user an idea of what they're getting themselves into when installing the add-on.

Like NoScript, it blocks some scripts and sometimes even advertisements. Because of this, I was able to access a site usually filled with intrusive advertisements that expects the user to block them, and while they didn't show up, I could access it nonetheless. I tried accessing the same site without Ghostery, and this time Adblock turned on, and my access was restricted.

It's perfect!

Possibly the best add-on I ever used Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Privacy is key. Ghostery is possibly the best way to protect it online. It's also always great to see who is tracking you.

Jetpack Problems Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Exeptional add-on that give me more control over the contents i want to load\see on a page.

Unfortunately some browsers like PaleMoon, that i use, are removing JetPack for various motives (PM is doing it cause it have lost most of the initial purposes being put in the FF code) and from the next version there will be no way to use Ghostery on PaleMoon.

Can you do something about this like making a working version for Pale Moon or trasforming it in a non-jetpack extension?

If not i will be really sad cause this is a relly great extension and it hurt me see the recension page vandalized as it is, i signalled the most annoying user but i hope something more will be done by Mozilla.

Like it. A LOT! Waardering 4 van 5 sterren

It may slow pages down a teeny bit (NOTE: I have not run any tests, just from general observation, with all its inherent biases), but it is worth it to see the whole list of trackers and turn them all or off as I please.

1 point unhappily deducted from rating because of that observed slowdown, and because I cannot give them a half star rating...
