2. What tweaks are available in Privacy Settings Manager addon?

There are currently seven distinct modifications available for this plugin. The first one is a content blocker (i.e., intrusive advertisements). These items are the main causes of browsing lag and also a source of leaking privacy due to the presence of superfluous JavaScript files in your browser. As a result, removing these elements from load can significantly improve your privacy. Please note that only “common” things are filtered by this extension (if you need a complete-featured blocker, utilize another add-on). The second change is to add a canvas fingerprint blocker. When you check this option, your canvas fingerprint will be renewed every time you refresh a tab or a website. #3 is for preventing webrtc leakage. This setting prevents webrtc from being transmitted by all websites, regardless of whether they’re in the whitelist or not. #4 is for adjusting your time zone. Even if you use a VPN or proxy to hide your location, changing your time zone might be beneficial in maintaining your anonymity. As a result, altering the timezone may be quite useful in preserving your privacy. Another source of privacy leaks is geolocation (tweak #5), which is also known as pinpointing. Tweak #6 allows you to define a specific SOCKS5 host and port for your browser. If you want to change your IP address without using a VPN service, this tweak may be useful. Tweak #7 is used to filter out most popular trackers, such as website analytics, by default it’s disabled. By default this tweak is inactive.

SOCKS5 proxy is the setting to be specified ( c ). This option is disabled by default. You may set any host and port, then enable it using #6 tweak. Please note that if you use a TOR proxy, the host & port should be 127.0 on .1:9050). Last option is for white listing a domain from all privacy modifications (deactivates the extension for certain domains). There is a plus sign next to item (d) ( ). Simply press the button to whitelist the current tab (domain). Reload the tab to see the updated page, then uncheck tweak #3. Webrtc is the only tweak that cannot be whitelisted. To deactivate webrtc, you must unselect it from the list. Comma-separated domains are required. You may modify your whitelist in the toolbar popup window; however, please make sure each domain is correct, such as,, and so on.
