Free Tools For Privacy Verification

Here are some free tools you can use to keep a company in line with their privacy practices. There are also some tools to prevent third parties (companies who track you) from getting your information as you browse the web.

1. Mitproxy

Using Mitmproxy, a free “behind the scenes” tool, you can do some investigation to find out whether a company collects more information about you than you would expect or if it sends your information insecurely.

2. PrivacyGrade

PrivacyGrade is a website that allows you to see how robust a company’s mobile application is atprotecting your privacy.

3. AdBlock

The AdBlock browser extension prevents ads from appearing on your browser when you are visiting sites. It also prevents some third parties from receiving some, but not all, information about you.

4. Do Not Track

The Do Not Track browser extension also attempts to minimize the information about you that third parties collect by informing them (many have opt-out policies) that you prefer not to be tracked.

5. Cookiepedia

Cookiepedia is an index of thousands of companies that try to collect information about you by placing cookies in your browser.  If a company lists the third parties that it uses in their Privacy Policy, you can look them up here to learn more about what they do with your data.

6. AppAnnie

AppAnnie gives you metrics about mobile applications and has some good aggregate statistics about sharing policies of different application industries which you could use to evaluate whether a mobile application you’re using shares too much information relative to the average company in that sector.
