Do you admit spying me when using the 1 Turn Off the Lights?

On the internet you see more bad software online that is spying me as a user. Or doing bad things behind your back. Turn Off the Lights is an Open Source browser extension and we do not add any ads, flashing elements, or other malware to your web browser (Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, Firefox, Maxthon, Microsoft Edge, etc). Also, we do not collect small amounts of anonymous data for research purposes to send it back to his server. And we do not scan the user’s whole browsing activity.

Manifest V3 technology

There are companies outside that email us many times to add a special script inside for data research. I can not accept these bad practices. I quote from a bad company that said this “research script is compatible with Chrome Web Store policy and with Manifest V3“. That is not true! It is a shame that this company lies to us.

There is no 3rd party research script inside the Turn Off the Lights browser extension. Because Manifest V3 does not allow extern script files. And we have no interest in that.

In the new Manifest V3 will be the default standard for browser extensions on 1 January 2023. The user will have more control over permissions, adding stricter protocols for accessing resources outside the extension’s context, and ensuring that extensions work well on all devices.
