The add-on aims to provide better transparency into which data websites collect and process when you visit them. It leads you directly to the often well-hidden privacy settings so you can quickly and easily check and change your consent for data processing, e.g. location sharing, face recognition or cookie tracking.
re:consent currently only works for websites that adhere to the “Transparency & Consent Framework” of the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), as well as Google and Facebook. For other websites it remains hidden. The free transparency tool is integrated into the Cliqz Browser for Windows and Mac and is available as an extension for Chrome and Firefox.
re:consent offers enhanced control over which data you share directly with website owners. It’s a smart addition to third-party tracking protection tools provided by Cliqz and Ghostery.
re:consent is an open source software created by Munich based Cliqz GmbH owned by Mozilla and Hubert Burda Media.
