    Comparing it to facebook where you put your real life data like full address, photos it being hilariously misinformed.
    Yes, yes. Just like those "sheep" who trust vaccines. You, on the other hand, have done the "real research."

    Lmao.

    Btw you dont need to download overwolf separately, you can just download curseforge that will install both apps. As for disabling stuff if someone is worried about his useless data:

    Its the other way around. "sheeps" who think their opinions taken out of their ass is more reliable than facts.

    People should be doing this kinda stuff anyway. Facebook was garbage since inception, & while something like Noscript might be a pain to use initially, controlling what sites can & cannot have running on your system is awesome.

    Let's say it was already sketchy when it was an overlay for hearthstone, so i personally simply don't trust them. If it was only a client with ads ok, but it gathers too much data in my oppinion.

    Started with Wowup and switched to Ajour. I'm loving Ajour, its extremely light weight and works perfectly.

    I will never download anything with overwolf.

    This is also all good advice.

    It actually gathers less data than usual websites you visit. And you can opt out of it unlike websites.

    Don't forget about using paper money and not do any online shopping. Since its way more privacy invading.

    The problem is, the same people that use facebook complain about data privacy from overwolf which is just dumb.

    The facts have already been presented and they go against your little theory. Listen pal, I could care less if you want to be misinformed and keep utilizing malicious programs from bad companies. I just think it's funny how much you sound like an antimasker in this thread, telling people to look at """""""REAL FACTS"""""" and stop being "sheep."

    You certainly fit the bill of someone who defends the likes of this kind of garbage. Have a good one.

    yep, I just call it overwolf, since it starts both, even though I just start curseforge. disabled most of the things you have shown, I didn't see those expanded pages, because it requires a login and I do not have an account with them to login with. curseforge doesn't seem to require one to update aps, so I'm not making one. but both use data options are disabled, as well as startup option. I checked and its not running in my processes when I exit the curseforge, so... /shrug

    Yes, Noscript i a bit of a hassle to setup for each site, but it is well worth it, both in regards of security, privacy and speed of loading sites.
    Noscript combined with an ad-blocker and a good tracking blocker is so good.
    I haven't had any security issues and haven't seen an add in many years. And "evil" sites like Wowhead load insanely fast when you block all the shit.

    Facts are being presented means we know what data overwolf collects, not some tinfoil histeria bullshit. Or some dumbass saying text log file has been recognized by some antivirus (LOL).
    It is you who sound like flat earther.

    I can't even browse the web without Noscript anymore. Yes, maybe it takes a couple of seconds to temp allow certain scripts, but it actually gains me way more time to not have to sit and wait for all these unnecessary scripts to load that just bog my browser down and make everything run slow. I even put it on my phone web browser.

    It also feels great to permanently block the facebook script from running on all sites. If people think that only harvests your data while on facebook, they don't know just how many sites run a facebook script.
