There are many fantastic browser extensions out there that are privacy by design and will protect your privacy while you browse the web with Chrome. They will help you surf the internet more secure, helping you to go incognito and making sure that you don't get followed around the web. We have listed our top picks here.

Best privacy extensions for Chrome

This extension gives you complete cookie control. It can automatically delete unwanted cookies from your closed tabs while keeping the ones you want. You can conveniently add the sites you trust in the White List (keeps cookies permanent) or Grey List (keeps cookies until browser restart).  

Not just an ad blocker, but a “wide-spectrum content blocker”, uBlock Origin is easy on your CPU capacity and memory, so it guarantees a smooth experience even on older machines. Filter lists of all kinds are available for you to customize. Additionally, you can point-and-click to block JavaScript locally or globally, create your own global or local rules to override entries from filter lists, and many more advanced features.

And now for something a little bit different. Instead of keeping filter lists of what to block, Privacy Badger automatically discovers trackers based on their behavior. Privacy Badger can send a Global Privacy Control signal to opt you out of data sharing and selling, and a Do Not Track signal to tell companies not to track you. If trackers ignore your wishes, Privacy Badger will learn to block them. Besides automatic tracker blocking, Privacy Badger replaces potentially useful trackers (video players, comments widgets, etc.) with click-to-activate placeholders, and removes outgoing link click tracking on Facebook and Google.

HTTPS Everywhere is an extension created by EFF and the Tor Project. It automatically switches thousands of sites from insecure "http" to secure "https".  It ensures a stress-free browsing experience by protecting you against many forms of surveillance and account hijacking.
