As data hoarding corporations keep sabotaging the constitution of the Do Not Track standard, and ad networks keep selling our profiles behind our backs, we are left with no choice but to fight back.
From the studios that brought you TrackMeNot, the browser extension that keeps searching to obfuscate your search queries, comes yet another data obfuscation plugin. AdNauseam - clicking ads, so you don’t have to.
The AdNauseam plugin works in concert with your favorite ad blocker. Every ad blocked is then silently clicked by AdNauseam, confusing your data trackers by virtually “liking” all ads.
Within your browser, the AdNauseam add-on collects and visualizes your click stream over time, giving you a small glimpse of the data you passively generate. AdNauseam works in the background and does not interfere with your browsing. Point your browser at this URL: dhowe.github.io/AdNauseam and install AdNauseam now.
spread the word and help us code as we work to make AdNauseam better and to bring it to more people and more browsers.
Finally, to the ad industry we would like to say it is time to be respectful of our privacy expectations. Let’s work together toward an honest and meaningful Do Not Track standard… until that day comes, be sure, we will keep pushing your buttons… all of them.
