conflict with DAA plugin?

Postby topscratch » Sat Feb 10, 2018 11:38 pm

Could there be a potential privacy compromise by using the DAA's "protect my choices" plugin (which stores your opt-out information) with ABP? Meaning could the DAA plugin negate some of ABP's anti tracking functionality? Thank you, topscratch

That's an interesting idea. Do I understand it right that you're suggesting to disable certain tracking-blocking rules and/or allow certain tracking requests based on the user's AdChoices preferences?

If so, it'd at least require somehow associating individual rules with the corresponding preferences. This mapping could, for instance, be maintained by the AdChoices program itself based on which they could then provide a filter list that any user of an ad blocker can add.
