Autofill of GDPR consent forms

Description

Cookie pop-ups are designed to be confusing and make you 'agree' to be tracked. This add-on automatically answers consent pop-ups for you, so you can't be manipulated. Set your preferences once, and let the technology do the rest!

This add-on is built and maintained by workers at Aarhus University in Denmark. We are privacy researchers that got tired of seeing how companies violate the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Because the organisations that enforce the GDPR do not have enough resources, we built this add-on to help them out.

We looked at 680 pop-ups and combined their data processing purposes into 5 categories that you can toggle on or off. Sometimes our categories don't perfectly match those on the website, so then we will choose the more privacy preserving option.

Can’t fault it

This is the ultimate quality-of-life improvement for browsing the modern web. It might be my single favourite app that I have installed due to how many tiny (but endless) papercut annoyances it saves me.

The only better option than this would be if cookie consent was implemented at the browser level rather than per-website!

Great extension

I was already using this extension on my laptop browser so you can imagine how exited I was when I saw it on the mobile AppStore.

Just a small suggestion, some times, for some reason, the extension misses one single permission so the privacy banner does not go away. An example of this is El País (Spanish Newspaper), but I have noticed the same issue on other websites.

Brilliant!

Finally, a reliable plugin that lets me specify my cookie handling preferences and then automatically applies it to websites I visit. It doesn't work with 100% of sites, because there are some design patterns the plugin doesn't recognise yet, but on most sites, it does the job, and it makes browsing the web much less irritating.
