So for the past few months, I’ve been thinking about how it’s so difficult for most people to assess how companies treat their data. Sure, people on here can sift through the news and read privacy policies. But how realistic is that for most people?
Here’s the (beta) url: https://privacyspy.org
It officially launches on September 15th, but I thought the PrivacyTools community might find it useful/interesting, so I thought I’d post it here for your feedback. And, if you all find it useful, maybe it will one day be included on the site itself.
There’s also a browser extension that shows you the rating of the site you’re currently visiting. (And no, the extension doesn’t send a request with your current URL to PrivacySpy to get the rating; it’s all done locally, so your browsing habits/URLs never leave your computer.)
Anyway, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the site, and please feel free to contribute code/grade additional policies if you have the time.
