How does Winston protect HTTPS pages from trackers?


Winston incorporates several layers of anti-tracking technologies. At the network level, we utilize encryption, DNS blocking, and dynamic security filters to block or allow TLS traffic. However, modern surveillance methods typically embed tracking software within the encrypted TLS connection.

To disable these technologies, you should install the Winston add-ons for Firefox and Chrome. These addons communicate with your local Winston device, transparently disabling or modifying cookies, blocking browser fingerprinting and more.

Note: Winston does support TLS interception but we no longer recommend this.
