It's virtually impossible to opt out.

It needs dozens of taps, some require you to go to the partner site to opt out which I didn't even attempt, and the navigation actually coerces you to go to the site instead of going back to opt out of the other categories.

Shame, imgur. One of the worst. Deserves an

@GDPRHallOfShame I dropped my pandora sub after they did this same thing. Yay for being open about it but jesus. And all those "partners" that you can't actually opt out of in that UI.

@GDPRHallOfShame I don't see how anyone could claim with a straight face that anyone will be picking and choosing which they opt out of. 99.999% of people want to opt out of all of them. And that last 0.001% are bots.

@freakazoid I now visited imgur.com again from fennec private browsing and I was not greeted with their GDPR stuff.

How did they know? Does private share cookies with normal mode? Local storage?

Anyway what I wanted to check was whether that "Allow All" link disables everything if presses, and indeed it does.

at it's worse but at least one does not have to tap that many times.

@GDPRHallOfShame Sharing cookies or local storage would be a pretty serious leak, so that shouldn't be the cause.

@freakazoid something leaks though because when I used chromium the popup appeared. I accepted and then opened an incοgnito tab. Popup was shown again.

In a to the , the "Allow All" link requires two taps to disallow all making the UX pattern ridiculously dark. I had dismissed it as a mistap before.

@GDPRHallOfShame word reference uses exactly the same stuff, it's horrible
