With Cyberpflege, in May this year we have created a much sought-after service, with the help of which you can easily delete unused accounts. In order to integrate this process even better into everyday life, we have decided to offer Cyberpflege as a plugin for all common browsers.
Cyberpflege Browser Plugin – Why Cyberpflege?
In this day and age it is almost a matter of course to be registered in several dozen services, on social media sites, on shopping portals or simply in forums.
As long as you use these accounts regularly, it’s not a problem, but it happens very quickly that you have signed up for a service only to make a purchase once or to post only once in the forum.
However, these zombie accounts are not only bad for the website operator, but also a risk for the former user, because in the past not only large Silicon Valley companies were affected by data thefts, but often also small Internet shops, which usually do not have a large IT security department.
That’s why we, the Aware7 GmbH, have launched the “Cyberpflege.de” project.This website gives an overview of the unsubscribe process for various services in the German-speaking area.
Addition to the website we have now also written a plugin for the common browsers (Firefox / Chrome).
Cyberpflege Browser Plugin – From the website directly to de
The plugin gives the user the possibility to get an overview of how difficult a later deletion of his account from the service will be.
Therefore our icon (the Aware 7 Seven) discolors in traffic light colors from green for simple to red for very heavy. For pages on which it is impossible to unsubscribe, the color black or violet is used. For services not yet known, the grid structure of our logo is displayed in white or black.
As soon as a user has decided to unsubscribe from a service, a click on the icon is sufficient to open the unsubscribe page of the respective service in a new tab.
If the user needs detailed instructions here, a further click on the icon is enough to display a to-do list with steps still to be taken. So that our plugin integrates seamlessly into any browser and its design, our Cyberpflege plugin automatically adapts to the selected design.
also applies to software development
For us, information security and data protection also come first during the development of software. Therefore, we have decided to install the necessary data for the Cyber Maintenance Plugin directly with the installation of the Cyber Maintenance Plugin, so no personal data of the user will be transferred to us if he wants to know how to unsubscribe from a service.
Cyberpflege Plugin – Installation
If you are now curious and would like to use our Cyber Maintenance Plugin, this is no problem at all. The installation takes place like with every Plugin over the Firefox or Google Plugin Store. Just visit the respective store and click on install.
The Aware7 team wishes you lots of fun trying out and logging off.
