What is Privacy Redirect?
'Privacy Redirect' is a Firefox extension designed with the aim of protecting your online privacy. It automatically redirects requests from social media platforms, such as Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and Google Maps, towards more secure and privacy-oriented alternatives, like Nitter, Invidious, Bibliogram, and OpenStreetMap. Additionally, the add-on provides options for setting custom instances, toggling all redirects on/off, and more.
