Like a firewall that controls network connections, JShelter controls the APIs provided by the browser, restricting the data that they gather and send out to websites. JShelter adds a safety layer that allows the user to choose if a certain action should be forbidden on a site, or if it should be allowed with restrictions, such as reducing the precision of geolocation to the city area. This layer can also aid as a countermeasure against attacks targeting the browser, operating system or hardware.
JShelter is a browser extension with support for multiple browsers: Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera. The extension also works with Brave, Microsoft Edge, and most likely any Chromium-based browser. Let us know if you want to add the extension to additional stores.
If you would like to give us feedback, we would really appreciate it.
If you want to add a new wrapper, please, follow the guide. If you have an image/artwork that you want to push to the project, we suggest stripping exif data:
exiftool -all= -tagsfromfile @ -Orientation filename.png
If you want to translate JShelter to a new language or improve an existing translation, go to Weblate.
