RGPD warning is the new cancer

Postby Samsnow » Tue Sep 25, 2018 1:23 am

Does anyone get tired of this HUGE pop-up like the one used by Quantcast on every website ?
I don't bother getting to the settings to uncheck all the trackings options anymore. Internet is still in a bad spot for user experience nowadays and that's how they get us.

Is it possible to build something to remove those annoying popups (automatically decline tracking, or at least remove the pop-up) ? It seems to me that most of the websites are using the same tool (Quantcast).
"I don't care about cookies" is a great list about previous obtrusive law notices, it would be amazing to have something for this new problem.

Sure, here is a french website for example :
Code: Select all
https://www.challenges.fr

It depends on the country you are from, so here are some screenshots of random websites :

On these websites there was a button to decline all trackings but it's not always the case. So best case scenario you have this huge popup and need 1 click if you accept default trackers, 3 otherwise (~10 if the button decline all isn't here).

go to https://fanboy.co.nz/
and subscribe Anti-Cookie Filters list

You should have Easyprivacy list subscribed too.

For other annoying popups you could also use Fanboy's annoyances list:
https://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions#type_other

(which includes fanboy's social list)

If you want to report issues with all these lists (or asking for new filters) just report here:
