baaaaaah.space was inspired by my personal experience with tracking cookies. I periodically clear my cookies but because this removes all my session cookies as well, I have to log into every website again. We wanted to create a tool that empowers users to understand the ways in which they're being tracked and help them take control of their personal data in an easier and more precise manner.
What it does
baaaaaah.space allows users to remove tracking cookies while leaving session cookies. It also informs users where the cookies that exist on their browser are from and how long they've been there.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of registering the domain baaaaaah.space which represents the transition of the user from an uninformed sheep to a knowledgable nebula.
What we learned
We learned a lot about the inner workings of chrome extensions and how browsers store cookie information.
What's next for baaaaaah.space
Our next step is to potentially expand into a full-featured chrome extension for user convenience.
