No, must you log in to use this browser extension? And you must not enter your credit card and CVV number (from VISA, Discover Card, MasterCard, America Express, etc)? No, the Turn Off the Lights browser extension doesn’t track you and doesn’t need your payment information. We take your privacy and security very seriously. The browser extension is open source and you are free to take a look at the open-source code.

Turn Off the Lights browser extension is written in HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and XUL. The code is not compressed and it does not use any random character as a variable name. That makes it difficult to understand the code function. It is all readable text, that you can read line by line (with a vertical scroll bar and no horizontal scroll bar). In the “locales” folder, that contains all the translation files. This is a JSON file that the translator community can translate this freely on the Crowdin website.
