New plug-in allows consumers to “Opt-Out Easy” of websites’ data collection

Consumers can easily identify opportunities to opt out of sharing personal data through the first-of-its-kind “Opt-Out Easy” browser plug-in developed by researchers from Carnegie Mellon’s CyLab Security and Privacy Institute. The plug-in makes opt-out choices more accessible to users, automatically extracting privacy information from websites’ policies and presenting it in a user-friendly way.
