Editors' Review

An Internet service that aims to improve your privacy, Blur can block trackers on sites across the Web, generate strong passwords for you, and even mask your sensitive information online. Working right in Safari as an extension, it gives you a quick and handy way of checking your privacy status without skipping a beat.

Pros

Tracker blocking: After installation, Blur places a button on Safari's toolbar; nearly every time you visit a site, you'll see a badge on that button saying how many trackers have been blocked. You can even view a list of blocked trackers from the extension's menu.

Quick password generator: You can easily generate random character passwords when registering on websites. What's more, so long as the extension is running, the log-in fields will auto-populate themselves.

Masked emails: With a few clicks, you can generate a random email address for signup forms; all emails from that random address are then forwarded to your actual email. You can create as many random emails as you like, even one per website registration.

Cons

Paid subscription required for advanced features: To enjoy advanced features like a masked phone number and credit card, you need to pay. In essence, these features provide you with disposable data that can be easily replaced.

Bottom Line

If you're concerned about what goes on behind the curtain on the Web and don't like your information being collected and then sold, a browser extension like Blur might be just what you're looking for. The tracker blocking alone makes this Safari extension worth a try.

 |  Version: Do Not Track Plus for Safari 1.0

Pros

Works as advertised and I had no problems downloading and installing in Safari

Cons

I experienced no problems with the product

I have Ghostery installed in Safari for a Mac and it seems to block more data than Do Not Track Plus, so I'll stick with Ghostery.
