A tool to measure your 3rd-party exposure score for web sites you visit.
What is uBO-Scope?
uBO-Scope is a unique Firefox add-on specially designed to provide you with an informed perspective about your online exposure. It calculates your third-party exposure score for the websites you visit with an aim to enhance your digital privacy. The lower the score, the better. It works on the principle of defining a third-party request as any network request to a remote server that carries a different base domain name than that of the URL in the address bar. uBO-Scope does amazing work in observing network traffic without altering it in any way.
uBO-Scope will be able to function accurately only for WebExtensions-based blockers -- it is unable to do its job properly with legacy-based blockers.
The popup panel of this extension may sometimes be affected by an issue which has been fixed in Firefox 57: "WebExtension browser action popup scrolls to the top on changing an element's style" https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1324499
