Disconnect – Fitur untuk memblok website mencuri data pribadi

Rekan-rekan mungkin pernah mendengar tentang kejahatan online yang bisa melacak dan mencuri informasi pribadi lewat jejaring sosial. Sekarang ada fasilitas yang bisa langsung memantau dan memblokir pelacakan dan pengambilan informasi pribadi tersebut.

Namanya Disconnect, program yang bisa memblokir penguntit dari facebook, twitter, yahoo!,google, dan digg. Disconnect adalah ekstensi peramban (addons) untuk memblokir website yang melacak dan mengirim informasi pribadi pengguna kepada situs lain. Ekstensi ini otomatis menghentikan gambar, ikon, dan piksel yang sedang dimuat pada situs yang mengirimkan informasi ke situs lain. Rekan-rekan bisa memantau berapa situs yang telah diblokir oleh Disconnect di tombol ekstensi ini.

Ikon, gambar, bahkan pixel yang dikirim ke situs lain akan digantikan dengan blok biru. Kalau kamu masih ingin mengaksesnya, klik saja blok biru itu agar pemuatan (Loading) dilanjutkan. Kamu juga bisa mematikan sama sekali fungsi blokir ini lewat tombol ekstensi disconnect yang ada di kanan atas peramban.

Saat ini Disconnect baru tersedia untuk google chrome, safari dan Firefox. Ekstensi untuk peramban lainnya masih dalam tahap pengembangan.

Stop third parties and search engines from tracking the webpages you go to and searches you do.

If you’re a typical web user, you’re unintentionally sending your browsing and search history with your name and other personal information to third parties and search engines whenever you’re online.

Take control of the data you share with Disconnect!

From the developer of the top-10-rated Facebook Disconnect extension, Disconnect lets you:

  • Disable tracking by third parties like Digg, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Yahoo, without requiring any setup or significantly degrading the usability of the web.
  • Truly depersonalize searches on search engines like Google and Yahoo (by blocking identifying cookies not just changing the appearance of results pages), while staying logged into other services — e.g., so you can search anonymously on Google and access iGoogle at once.
  • See how many resource and cookie requests are blocked, in real time.
  • Easily unblock services, by clicking the toolbar button then services (and reloading current pages) — e.g., so you can play games on Facebook.

Disconnect is open-source software — you can get the code at http://j.mp/dsource.

Known Issues:

  • The scary installation warning is explained at http://j.mp/dinstall (the text refers to Facebook Disconnect but also applies to Disconnect).
  • Click the “d” button then the “Depersonalize searches” checkbox to turn search depersonalization on (or back off in case you have trouble getting to Google or Yahoo services).
  • Search depersonalization isn’t yet implemented for international Google domains — google.fr, google.co.jp, et cetera.
  • Yahoo has to be unblocked while you’re logging into Flickr or Delicious but can be blocked again afterwards.
  • Unblocking Facebook isn’t possible while Facebook Disconnect is running — that extension will be autoupdated to be compatible with Disconnect in the next few days.
  • You should unblock Google and Yahoo before disabling or uninstalling Disconnect — doing so will restore your cookies to their original state.

Nb:
Kelemahan dari addons ini adalah kode Captcha yang ikut terblok apabila kita akan posting di blog atau forum komunitas, solusinya adalah men-disable terlebih dahulu addons ini sebelum posting
SELAMAT MENCOBA  😀
