I'm spending my Friday night booking in a proctored exam, for which they require me to install the 'ProctorU' browser extension. Which is great, except that it's LITERAL SPYWARE. ☹️

And here I thought my HP printer was violating my privacy..

@Gina Use an own firefox profile for such a case:

`firefox -p` will allow you to set one up, that you can keep or delete immediately. It's not really a solution, but at least a work around to limit the access of such an extension.


@sheogorath I already have firefox set up in such a way that my cookies and data are deleted upon closing it, but still.
