Franzi’s ShareMeNot incorporated into the EFF Privacy Badger

The EFF just released a new online privacy tool, called Privacy Badger, to help protect against third-party tracking on the web.

The EFF worked with Franzi Roesner to integrate her ShareMeNot functionality into Privacy Badger. Privacy Badger uses the ShareMeNot techniques to handle social media widgets.

To quote from the EFF Press Release: “EFF wishes to thank Professor Franziska Roesner at the University of Washington for exceptional work in enhancing Privacy Badger’s widget-handling algorithms.”
