We monitor websites and services to discover companies’ data collection, data use, and deceptive practices. Using our measurement software OpenWPM, we study privacy, security, and ethics of consumer data usage.
Our external oversight incentivizes companies to improve privacy and avoid deceptive practices. The data and studies that we produce assist regulators & browser makers in their privacy 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.
