Now tracks your users and displays ads and junk

  • Latest versions of LockerZ/AddToAny now track your visitors and display ads and other unsolicited offers. Only way to get rid of this is via cryptic javascript and css changes “documented” in response to complaints on the forums.

    Do not install, do not use.

    No, actually, the plugin has never displayed ads or offers. AddToAny was under Lockerz for a short period of time where there was an unobtrusive & removable “PTZ” tab to give “PTZ” for sharing, but even that was disabled in the plugin.

    Micropat: does it track the blog’s users, as the OP claims (ie. data mining of any kind?)?

    Does the plugin store any user data, in aggregate or otherwise, on the AddtoAny, or related, servers?

    Or, does the plugin keep all data localized the user’s server, with no user/website data being transmitted, stored, disseminated or tracked on the AddToAny servers or services?

    Interesting remarks!?
    But 2.8M downloads. What gives? is this a usable plugin or does it comes will all kind of ‘invisible to non-gurus’ strings attached?
