Community driven GDPR cookie consent and other popups removal tool.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the toughest privacy and security law in the world. Though it was drafted and passed by the European Union, it imposes obligations onto organizations anywhere, so long as they target or collect data related to people in the EU. The regulation was put into effect on May 25, 2018.
Since then, web is being flooded with annoying and obtrusive cookie consent bars or pop-ups requiring user interaction, narrowing browser's viewport or covering page content. We have an idea to build a community and together deal with this and other popups like push notifications, subscribe prompts or turn-off-your-ad-blocker messages once and for all. There has not yet been a solution like this!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1. We are testing and improving our auto-recognization algorithm consisting of a set of so called "common rules", textual analysis and other features in order to locate and hide the unwanted content. This works for majority of websites, however in some cases it is practically impossible to find and hide the right element automatically. That's why:
2. We are building community responsible for provision and update of page-specific rules. You can report any unwanted popups or elements that are not hidden by automatic features directly in extension's window and developers will take care of your feedback. You can also visit our page-specific rule editor (https://www.axelproductions86.com/provision-rule-editor) and define rules for any specific website by yourself. After approval those rules will be synced with client extensions.
IS IT FREE?
Yes, core concept and basic functionality is and always will be free. However, there should be some reward system for active contributing users. We are planning some additional unlockable features that could be alternatively unlocked with few bucks. Details are being discussed.
