Disclaimer

Due to the nature of this extension, this will break most sites! It is designed to learn over time with sites that you allow.

Info on Permissions Requested by ScriptSafe

  • “Read and change all your data on the websites you visit” – this sounds scary, but ScriptSafe needs access to pages in order to block things (e.g. scripts, spoof headers, killing webbugs).
  • “Display notifications” – this is required for update and sync notifications (if syncing is enabled)
  • “Change your privacy-related settings” – this is required for the WebRTC Protection feature

Privacy Policy

Over the years I’ve received offers from many individuals/organizations to sell them ScriptSafe (and its users); my answer has and always will be: no.

ScriptSafe has never and will never log or send your data to third-party entities.

I also will not accept requests for domains to be pre-whitelisted in return for monetary or personal gain.

About the Creator

Hi, I’m Andrew. ScriptSafe was created by one ordinary guy (me) as a simple weekend project in 2011 lovingly coded in my bedroom. It has evolved into what it is today with numerous development hours and the help of its over 240,534 users and feedback. I am the only developer and I use ScriptSafe myself every day on every device I use.
