I need an add-on to obfuscate my clicks on websites where I'm logged in as a paying user.

Wysłano

There are many online media pages, like New York Times, the German SPIEGEL, FAZ (german newspaper faz.net, whatever), who require that I log in before I can read their articles. To log in means to pay for content.

This is ok. *I'm prepared to pay for journalism.*

But I'm afraid that all those websites collect every click on their website, build a database on what my interests are and sell the data as a surplus to whoever. They know my name from the payment and so there is not much sense in using a nickname for signing in.

I don't want news sites to get a clear picture who I am and what I am reading.

I can't avoid that they collect data about »me«, but maybe I can render the data useless. I'm looking for a firefox add-on, which does this:

1. After I log into a certain page
2. the addon clicks
3. in the background
4. randomly 
5. on all the links on the website,
6. except for some I specified in advance (e.g. inclucing words like »buy now«).

Instead of special interest the database of the website only gets random data.

Does that exist? Otherwise, to whom should I address my whish?

And YES, I know that the whole internet depends on advertisement, and NO, I don't have a fb account and no whatsapp.

Hello Keks Dose, That is a very interesting suggestion. I'm not aware of any extensions/add-ons available which can do all of that but, feel free to browse for yourself: Firefox Add-ons Privacy & Security

Can I also suggest that you visit the Extension Workshop and crosspost your suggestion there.
