(EasyPrivacy) Filter question

Postby guest » Sun Oct 26, 2014 4:23 am

I've noticed that EasyPrivacy has included the filter
Code: Select all
@@||s.youtube.com/api/stats/playback?$object-subrequest

It seems to whitelist items that send some of user's history on YouTube and user's browser info to the server, and I think it may have been added by mistake.
Can someone please check it?

Thanks

The change notes say that the history feature wasn't working.

No wonder why history wasn't working as this is an anti-tracking list... :roll:

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like the filter is not a mistake or oversight...
Would it be feasible to re-work the subscription filters to allow this item without whitelisting it?

Whitelisting and allowing are synonymous.

Firefox users can disable individual filters, including those from subscriptions. Other than that, I see no way around this.

Sorry, I wasn't being clear. By "allow" I meant "not blocked and not whitelisted" / "no filters applied"...

Unfortunately I use both Firefox and Chromium...
