Privacy Redirect for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge will redirect Twitter, YouTube, Instagram & Google Maps requests to more privacy-friendly alternatives.
The following are the alternatives that are used. Each is historically better with the overall privacy of your data, including limiting data collection.
• Nitter – github.com/zedeus/nitter (Twitter alternative frontend)
• Invidious – github.com/omarroth/invidious (YouTube alternative frontend)
• Bibliogram – github.com/cloudrac3r/bibliogram (Instagram alternative frontend)
• OpenStreetMap – wiki.openstreetmap.org (Google Maps alternative frontend)
All the redirects that are performed by Privacy Redirect allow you to quickly enabled/disable them. This can be done through the dropdown menu.
This extension/add-on is a great option for those tired of data leaks, collection, and assorted other practices that some of the big-name social media sites use, allowing you to be in more control of what is shared. The alternatives are all Open Source.
