ClearURLs for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge will automatically remove tracking elements from URLs.
This extension is designed to help protect your privacy when browsing the Internet by automatically removing various URL tracking elements as well as assisting in speeding up load time.
Many websites use tracking elements in the URL, like this example.com?utm_source=newsletter1&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=sale) which marks your online activity. All that tracking code is not necessary for a website to be displayed or work correctly and can therefore be removedâ€”that is exactly what ClearURLs does. It also offers an option to paste a specific URL (or URLs) for checking.
ClearURLs provides you with over 250 rules instead of some of the other similar products on the market that, on average, offer under 15. This fact makes ClearURLs a more comprehensive privacy tool.
