Public Service Announcement:

"uBlock Origin" and "uBlock" are two different privacy plugins for web browsers.

✅ uBlock Origin is the one switching.social recommends

❌ uBlock is NOT recommended

For more information on why they have such similar names but are so different:

p.s. Switching.social recommends installing both uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger (eff.org/privacybadger) alongside each other.

@switchingsocial privacy badger isn't really useful if you already have Ublock Origin and block third party cookies. I'd recommend Privacy Possum + Ublock Origin.
