We monitor websites and services to find out what user data companies collect, how they collect it, and what they do with it. With our measurement platform, we study privacy, security, and ethics of consumer data usage.
Our external oversight exposes the privacy practices of companies and forces them to make improvements. In addition, the data and studies that we produce assist regulators and privacy tool developers in their efforts.
We translate our research into practical information for public consumption. We aim to improve the accuracy of media reports about online privacy and to provide useful advice for consumers on this website.
