Overview

Extension for increasing security and privacy level of the user.

What is JShelter? JShelter is a browser extension to give back control over what your browser is doing. A JavaScript-enabled web page can access much of the browser's functionality, with little control over this process available to the user: malicious websites can uniquely identify you through fingerprinting and use other tactics for tracking your activity. JShelter aims to improve the privacy and security of your web browsing. How does it work? Like a firewall that controls network connections, JShelter controls the APIs provided by the browser, restricting the data that they gather and send out to websites. JShelter adds a safety layer that allows the user to choose if a certain action should be forbidden on a site, or if it should be allowed with restrictions, such as reducing the precision of geolocation to the city area. This layer can also aid as a countermeasure against attacks targeting the browser, operating system or hardware. Please see the FAQ (https://jshelter.org/faq/) and our blog (https://jshelter.org/blog/) for more information about the extension. What is the threat model? https://jshelter.org/threatmodel/ Can I read a paper about the extension? Yes, see https://arxiv.org/abs/2204.01392

this is a really good extension! it worked on install without me having to make any changes, and going to a site like EFF Cover Your Tracks showed that my fingerprint had indeed been randomized. there are also a lot of additional settings to customize too, if you want to go even deeper. happy that extensions like this exist that focus on privacy and have good ease-of-use!

Pretty good extension. If you're a user that found NoScript to be a little too time consuming to get setup properly etc. I'd try this out. It's basically a "set it and forget it" form of NoScript that does all the blocking you need with no initial setup or tinkering, although you can still tinker AND there are plenty of settings to tinker with.

Unusable black hole. In the first 2 hours of using (Vivaldi 5.6.2867.62 on Win7-x64): 1. Kills reCaptcha service (until JS Shield prohibited - the very essense of the extension) 2. Kills DisQus service (until JS Shield prohibited - the very essense of the extension) 3. The bug reports page can not be found from the main site 4. When finally found - it requests you to create new account (logging in with OpenID/OAuth through other sites? no, not in 21 century) just for the privileger of layin... Show more
