Decentraleyes

Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery. It prevents a lot of requests from reaching networks like Google Hosted Libraries, and serves local files to keep sites from breaking. Complements regular content blockers.

Over time,websites have started to rely more and more on large third parties for content delivery. Canceling requests for ads or tracking scripts usually goes without issues, but blocking actual content, unsurprisingly, breaks websites. Decentraleyes aims to cut out the middleman through blazing-fast delivery of local (bundled) content to improve your online privacy.

• Protects your privacy, by evading large delivery networks that claim to offer free services.
• Complements regular blockers like uBlock Origin (recommended), Adblock Plus, and others.
• Works directly out of the box, so absolutely no prior configuration is required.

Note: Decentraleyes is no silver bullet, but it does prevent a lot of websites from making you send these kinds of requests. Ultimately, you can make Decentraleyes block requests for any missing CDN resources, too.

Am I Currently Protected?

The following testing utility shows you if you are properly protected. It's the recommended and, probably, fastest way to see if this add-on is installed, enabled, and correctly configured.

Frequently Asked Questions

• Where can I see its status, or in what way it impacts network activity?
• Why doesn't it deliver resources from CDNs I block using a different add-on?
• Can CDNs track me even though they do not place tracking cookies?
• My browser caches downloaded CDN libraries, doesn't that protect my privacy?
