Trashmanstory / browser plug in


Data protection plug-in for your web browser
„TrashmanStory“ – a challange to Datenkrakens.

The browser plug-in „TrashmanStory“ protects the user against data-spying by market research companies on the internet. During daily surfing, the left behind personal data of the user is extended with data-trash and thereby distorted. The plug-in produces data-trash by independently navigating to websites with certain topics which the user has previously selected by dressing up the three trashman that can be found in the included configurator. Now they are ready to fight the evil data-krakens!
