Mozilla and Brave release one-click method for online privacy requests
Mozilla, Brave and other online privacy leaders have released a streamlined way to protect your privacy
Mozilla, Brave, and others in the world of secure web browsers have teamed up to make it easier for users to communicate their privacy demands.
With the enactment of privacy laws like California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and Europe's GDPR, the internet has struggled to give users the tools they need to take advantage of their new power of privacy.
With that in mind, the team of internet-privacy leaders have developed the new Global Privacy Control (GPC), which sends signals to participating websites to inform them of do-not-sell requests, as outlined in CCPA regulations. It also sends a general request to limit the sale or sharing of a user’s personal data in accordance with GDPR.
This allows users to protect their data and privacy with just a single step instead of having to click the privacy links on each website.
To activate GPC, users can simply install an affiliated extension, like Blur by Albine, Disconnect or DuckDuckGo, on their browser. They can also download one of the participating browsers, which includes Mozilla Firefox or Brave, and more.
You can find the full list of participating browsers and extensions from the GPC website.
