Hackaburg 2019 Track Data Privacy Group

Goal:

Create a browser extension (Chromium) to automatically recognize threats to your privacy. Inform the user about the data that's leaked from his device to third-parties.

Features:

  • The websites are rated in a traffic light style (green = safe, orange = some tracking, red = evil data stealing platform) in realtime => enables fast recognition of problematic websites
  • Attempt to classify the data transmitted by various requests
  • selective blocking of chosen parties to enhance the privacy while browsing

Impact:

Enduser can recognize normally unseen dataleaks.
