Description

Rekt removes the "use our app" banners, buttons and login nags on the most popular social media sites. Rekt also redirects AMP links to their correct source website.

Rekt is a super minimal Safari extension that declutters and de-AMPs the "modern" web. Tired of seeing tons of banners and buttons asking you to use the app or login? Rekt silently, and safely, removes all of them.

Rekt also automatically redirects AMP links to their correct source website.


PRIVACY FIRST
---------------
Rekt has been built with a privacy first approach.

- All the blocking happens on your device with literally ZERO data being recorded or sent back to be data mined.
- Rekt doesn't keep usage data like the count of how many popups and banners it has blocked or links it has redirected.
- Rekt doesn't even come with basic app analytics or telemetry to keep track of how many times you've opened or use the app.
- It does check whether you have dark mode on or not so it can show you the correct tutorial video. (I hate opening a bright video on dark mode as much as you.)

If you're a security researcher, feel free to reach out to me for a license to make sure the app isn't up to anything funky.


DECLUTTER THE "MODERN" WEB
----------------------------------
Currently, it de-clutters and removes most “omfg please use our app” banners and buttons as well as the annoying login popups from:

- Reddit
- Twitter
- Facebook
- Quora
- Instagram
- Imgur

As added bonuses;
- Rekt nukes those infernal AMP links from Google by transparently redirecting you to the correct, canonical link.
- Prevent Quora from asking you to login to just look at an answer.

Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Imgur, Quora, or Reddit, everyone wants me, and by extension you, to use their damned apps to consume content.

Harder for us to block ads and much easier for them to scoop up your data, right? To further that agenda, simply browsing their sites on Safari now means we’re inundated with, well, waves of crap.

Whether it’s a modal covering half the screen with links to the App Store, an immediate popup asking you to login, or a header screaming “the app is 10x better”; it has to go. All of it.

Currently covers up Twitter share sheet

No specific issues I’ve noticed in my usage except that I can’t share a tweet via the share sheet on twitter without disabling the extension.

Thank you for the bug report. Will investigate and have an update out as soon as I can. Thanks again for buying Rekt! I appreciate it. :)

Garbage

I got this to block websites from asking me to use their App. However, I still get those pop-ups for many sites. I’m not sure if every website has to be manually added, but regardless it does make more to be desired. Additionally, I use Google News and still get AMP URLs instead of the site’s URL. I’ll update my review someday when this App actually does what I paid for it to do. Get AMPlosion instead and Unsmartifier, they’re both way better and actually work. And to the developer, yes it was all setup correctly with all of the correct permissions. You may have 1,000s of happy users, but let’s not forget you posted on Reddit and have many away. I’m a user who is telling you it doesn’t work and therefore I’m not happy. AMPlosion works flawlessly.

Developer Response ,

Hey there! Thanks for the feedback. Can you please confirm Rekt has been enabled and has been given the required permissions? We have a few thousand happy users at the moment and the initial setup always seems to cause the most confusion. I’ll try to make the setup process more friendly and with more instruction in the future. Thanks for the feedback again.
