Firefox Lightbeam – Which Websites are Tracking You?

*post updated April 2021*

Every Friday I try to post links to cool content and tools that I’ve found or had recommended to me.

Cool stuff I’ve found this week, with a security and privacy theme:-

Firefox Lightbeam (formerly Mozilla Collusion) – a plug-in for Firefox that shows you which websites are tracking you, and how they are inter-connected. The Lightbeam extension is still available but no longer supported by Firefox – downloading it could be a security risk.

There are a whole range of other anti-tracking browser extensions available too – you can find a short list here. Thanks to Aimee O’Driscoll at Comparitech for sharing her article!

Any cool content or tools to share with me? Contact me and if I feature them in my blog, I’ll be sure to give you credit!

Have a great weekend!
