MORE CORRUPTION: Tax Prep Software Sending Personal Data To Meta, Facebook Reader 11/22/2022 (Tue) 18:22 Id: e83b4a [Preview] No. 19349
Tax Prep Software Sending Personal Data To Meta, Facebook

Popular tax prep software including TaxAct, TaxSlayer and H&R Block sent sensitive financial information to Facebook parent company Meta

through its widespread code, known as a pixel, that helps developers track user activity on their sites, an investigation by The Markup found.

In a report published with The Verge on Tuesday, the outlet found Meta pixel trackers in the software sent information like names, email addresses, income information and refund amounts to Meta, violating its policies. The Markup also found that TaxAct had transmitted similar financial information to Google via its analytics tool.

As CNBC explained in 2018, Meta uses tiny pixels that publishers and businesses embed on their websites. The dots send a message back to Facebook when you visit. And it allows companies to target ads to people based on sites they previously visited.


The data, sent through widely used code called the Meta Pixel, includes not only information like names and email addresses but often even more detailed information, including data on users’ income, filing status, refund amounts, and dependents’ college scholarship amounts.

The information sent to Facebook can be used by the company to power its advertising algorithms and is gathered regardless of whether the person using the tax filing service has an account on Facebook or other platforms operated by its owner Meta.

Each year, the Internal Revenue Service processes about 150 million individual returns filed electronically, and some of the most widely used e-filing services employ the pixel, The Markup found.

When users sign up to file their taxes with the popular service TaxAct, for example, they’re asked to provide personal information to calculate their returns, including how much money they make and their investments. A pixel on TaxAct’s website then sent some of that data to Facebook, including users’ filing status, their adjusted gross income, and the amount of their refund, according to a review by The Markup. Income was rounded to the nearest thousand and refunds to the nearest hundred. The pixel also sent the names of dependents in an obfuscated — but generally reversible — format.

Yup. So, what is one to do?
Read it and weep...


Enjoy This Tool:


Start testing the websites you use today!

Also, I found a site with the Meta Pixel code on it, and was able to remove the offending code from below the Header by right-clicking and Editing the HTML with the Inspector, then reloading the page. I doubt that will work everywhere, and you still gotta visit the page to do it. I haven't checked further to see about blocking outbound traffic through my firewall to whatever IPs it is sending info too, but assume that's possible. I'd be willing to bet there are hundreds of Fakebook IPs snooping everywhere though.

About those spy pixels, would it help denying Javascript for most sites like I already do, or would I have to take more measures to secure the browser's (temporary) DOM storage?

The Meta Pixel appears to load its own Javascript code. I also block all that shit, but am pretty fine-tuned in my approach, as I use a combination of uBlock Origin set up in an advanced way,which allows a lot more blocking, plus uMatrix, which allows for much more fine-tuning, and really lets you see a lot more detail as to exactly what is going on with one's interaction with each site. Between those two one can completely dispense with less powerful tools like NoScript; but for most people NoScript will be easier than learning how to fuck around with uMatrix on each site they visit! But uMatrix is SO MUCH MORE POWERFUL and Fine-Tuned, and SO "WORTH IT"..

Let me give an example of a website that is pozzed as fuck.


Install uBlock Origin and block all third-party scripts, or all scripts, or all third-party everything if you want; or open up to everything but 3rd-party frames; it doesn't matter, because you can fine-tune your approach in uMatrix; and much will be learned every which way! You can figure out for yourself which tools are fucking everybody everywhere and you can block them in particular. Yes, it takes time to get uMatrix set up the way you want it for the websites you visit on the regular, but it's "WORTH IT".

As for DOM Storage, I use so many different browsers and sandboxed profiles that I have found it easiest to just make custom cleaners for Bleachbit and clean that shit after every browser shutdown, which can be quite regular! Good luck, bro! At least neither of us is being tracked and surveilled via our cellphone SIMS constantly contacting the nearest Stingray Device! SIM? Nope. Not for me. I do have a Pinephone, but I use it on Wi-Fi, and have VPNs, Lokinet, Tor, and, of course,
, which is pretty awesome. Privoxy also can come in handy sometimes. It is important to learn HOW Network Traffic is routed, and CONTROL That. BTW, you could buy a cheap little Pi Zero and turn it into a Lokinet Wi-Fi Hotspot for your home too if you want. We can make shit a lot harder for these snooping fuckers, but if they have a real hard-on for you, they can probably compromise you. Even if they were to fully compromise me, all they would find is that I have a somewhat dim view of Authority figures like them snooping in on everything and fucking with my Authenticity. Other than having a "bad attitude" in relation to "Authority", I'm not doing anything "Wrong"; I mean, besides the "Wrong-Think" I am obviously guilty of!

I tried playing around with uMatrix a while back ago but it was too complicated and too much work to fool around with, I found the easiest way to defeat third party spying was to take a chainsaw like noscript and completely cut off Javascript to 90% of the websites I visited (also removing everything in their whitelist of-course). Plus the fact I use multiple browsers for different online activities and routinely gutmann bleaching all the .sqlite browser session caches, I doubt they'll be able to get much data from me let alone track me. WebGL and WebRTC are disabled for all my browsers too. Got no microphone or camera they can access if they did manage to hack my browser. I'll also admit I have another isolated personal computer I use for legit stuff like personal email and buying stuff online but that stays offline most of the time when not in use and has a completely different VPN. I doubt I'd need to go through the hassle of finding an outdated uMatrix add-on for my browsers just to stay secure. BTW, I do use the Librewolf web browser like you recommended and it works great.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your family, I did and am looking forward to breaking open some more single malt scotch with some old friends come New Years Eve!

> I tried playing around with uMatrix a while back ago but it was too complicated and too much work to fool around with

About that... I had the exact same experience a decade ago and did not try it again until a couple years ago. I can tell you exactly where my frustration came from, and would encourage you to try again. Let me explain... Back in the day, like you, I was addicted to NoScript (won't even mention the security implications of that particular AddOn, but you can do your own research on that matter.) The fact is that NoScript is completely superfluous. It is completely uneccessary, because you can use uBlock Origin to block all scripts anyway, or just 3rd-party scripts if you want. As in, there is nothing NoScript does that uBlock Origin cannot do, and better. Use the advanced options and you'll see what I mean. I've been telling you that for years, Killcen. But that is neither here nor there either. I'm trying to explain why I had frustration with uMatrix. It is because I was using NoScript and uBlock Origin in Nightmare Mode with it! There are several things that uBlock Origin can do that uMatrix can't, and vice versa. They are both essential to me now. I love the Element Zapper in uBlock Origin, for example. Unfortunately, however, even without the added complication and frustration of having NoScript be a part of any situation (as I said, NoScript is a COMPLETELY UNECCESSARY AddOn, and only complicates matters, so turn it off or get rid of it while you try this...), there is still the complication of two different addons (namely uBlock Origin & uMatrix) both trying to control scripts (but at least there won't be three, amirite?) That is what causes the complications and frustrations, having too many controllers for the same activities. All my "problems", "complications" and "frustrations" began to fall away, however, once I stopped blocking scripts with uBlock Origin too, and just let uMatrix take care of that (as it is, like I said, much better at it, and has far more fine-tuned-control that you could never get with NoScript, and not really with uBlock Origin either. So, now I only block Frames in uBlock Origin, (plus all the other shit it blocks with block lists.) I use it mostly for the Element Zapper now, and it is useful for a few other things, but I won't bore you with more info now. Seriously though, using only one powerful tool to block all scripts, instead of three, will VERY MUCH Lessen Your Frustration with uMatrix! It IS the best tool for script blocking, and a number of other types of blocking you can't get with NoScript or uBlock Origin. It's fine-tuned approach is FAR Safer than ANYTHING Remotely Possible with NoScript, or even with uBlock Origin. I encourage you to give it another try, and you'll see what I mean. It's default is to block all scripts, so there really is no excuse not to give it another try. Just turn off your NoScript AddOn, and set your uBlock Origin to allow scripts to go through to uMatrix, which will block 'em all, and you can decide exactly which one you want to let get through. No website will be able to trick you into ANY of their nefarious shit again, unless you want them to! I'm not gonna lie... It will take an hour or so to get the hang of it, but it's easy as pie, and once your favorite sites are set up with the settings you like you will not look back to NoScript, and will uninstall it.
I don't suppose you still use the 'HTTPS Everywhere' AddOn too, do you? Another completely uneccesary AddOn if you just tick the box forcing all your traffic to be HTTPS in the Browser Settings. The less AddOns you have, the better. I really only have a few. Privacy Badger, Decentraleyes, Cookie AutoDelete, Firefox Multi-Account Containers, uBlock Origin, and uMatrix. That's all I need. Never been happier.

Yes, some sites are pozzed as fuck, and it can sometimes take me 10 seconds or more to figure out exactly which things I need to open up to in order for the site to work (because the default setting is "Deny All" in uMatrix, and that's how I like it.) Those sites include banks and government websites, especially the ones that send you from page to page, or site to site. uMatrix catches all that shit. NoScript, not so much. Only uMatrix can also block XHR and other nefarious shit. It's a fantastic AddOn (no I don't work for them, lol!)
And yes, I still use 'apparmor' and 'firejail' for sandboxing separate Firefox Profiles for different activities. Highly Recommend.


Firefox Multi-Account Containers and Bleachbit can only go so far! And yes, it is really easy to make Custom Bleachbit Cleaners for those Sandboxed Profiles, so...

Thanksgiving was good family time. The chances of either of my parents making it to the next one is pretty slim. They are, after all, BELIEVERS, and they BELIEVE in Big Pharma and the "Health Care" Industry. They BELIEVE the Lamestream Media, and they BELIEVE Doctor Fauci, and all the Murderers in the Medical Community; so they got all vaxxed to shit, and of course, almost instant 4th Stage Cancer overnight. No cancer, no medical issues whatsoever before. Now, both have months left. There is nothing I can do about that. I am a pariah, an evil "Anti-Vaxxer" to them. What Big Pharma, Big Government, the medical community and the media have done to families is unforgivable, and they'll be finding that out in the long run... All I can do is look to my own health, on every front — especially the Spiritual front; where the REAL Battle is.
I hope you have a great Christmas with your own family. I doubt I can make another trip to see mine. I miss my daughters terribly, and one of them lives very very far away, and she also fell for the Fauci Death Jab at least once (I finally talked her out of getting more.) As for the whiskey, I hope you enjoy it. I think about the wonderfulness of whiskey quite a bit at this time of year, but what little I do remember of my whiskey-drinking days makes me not want to revisit any of that, even though a nice drinky stinky might be nice! I even quit smoking dab many months ago, and just focus on eating healthy, exercising, meditating, taking vitamins, and limiting all the negativity inputs from all directions.
Anyway, Love Ya, Bro! Wish you well, and never let the idiots get you down.
Speaking of, I will probably be cleaning up the idiocy over on my own board and re-indexing it before Christmas; but, like I said, it is not high priority. No, I don't think Neptroon will ever stop spreading misery and hate there until the day he dies (but he did predict his own death before the end of this year, so...) (or was that yours's?) Nonetheless, maybe I'll continue to use it as a place to vent and blogpost, like I am wont to do — just like old times...

And yes, it is probably unnecessary to make another post merely to mention that I know how to spell the word "unnecessary", but here it is! I have found that certain words fuck with my dyslexia more as I've gotten older. Irritating, as you know how I like to write! It seems that most in the younger generations will not even bother to read anything longer than 500 characters anyway. No wonder most lack the ability to even follow an entire thought process through! I think, as much as I love the internet, it's so controlled nowadays, just like the minds of all phonefags, and I think we'd be better off without it, at least for awhile. I won't be sad at all if we lose the internet (and I Fully Expect our ACCESS to it to be HEAVILY CURTAILED & CONTROLLED, even more than it already is, in the future.) So many will jump through so many hoops just to maintain their Access to Slave Tools, including poisonous injections, smart rids, smart cities, and total biometrical surveillance. They just cannot Imagine living without their Slave Devices. They think of their Persona's interaction with the Digital World like an actual Human Need; as important as drinking water, breathing air, or eating food. They would go completely insane without it. I kinda hope to witness some o' that!
In the meantime, I am copying what I can and want off the internet before it is scrubbed (like is happening moment by moment now!) Those who keep some records will be able to share the REAL History in the future with those who will be brainwashed and indoctrinated into LIES about history. No matter what, The TRUTH WILL BE BURIED. It always has been. If you care about the future of humanity, keeping an accurate record of the things you find important about what's going on Right Now will be of prime importance to some few in the future, and it is a sacred responsibility. (of course, the chances of anyone being able to even READ in the future are looking pretty slim right now.) The Metaverse awaits them, and they want No Part of REALITY.

>and would encourage you to try again

I will try uMatrix again in one of my browsers, I have multiple web browsers for different online activities, as you would know for a very good reason. I won't bother with sandboxing separate browser profiles as I wipe all the browser session sqlite data out routinely anyway. No point in making that a more difficult task when all I have to do is click a button and watch the browser session files get "bleached" (encrypted & overwritten 35x with pseudo-random data) and wiped off the harddrive.

>it is really easy to make Custom Bleachbit Cleaners for those Sandboxed Profiles

Yes, it is easy, but it still takes time to program it in for each browser profile. The more profiles, the longer it takes until it becomes over burdensome. Plus once that data is bleached there is no way of getting it back anyway, it's gone.

>I don't suppose you still use the 'HTTPS Everywhere' AddOn too

Do not bother with it anymore, I used to but like you mentioned we can set up HTTPS-only within most browser settings today. I do have it in one of my longly outdated web browsers but don't use it much anymore (an old Waterfox).

That said I'll let you know how uMatrix works out.

This is what I also assume will likely become of the internet. It is time to not only prepare, but also start making moves to go "low tech" and "no tech" as well. Mike Adams made a whole podcast about this issue last year over on his site, Natural News. We have to start adjusting to living life without relying on the internet, and possibly no longer relying on the current power grid infrastructure too. Think how many poor people in Ukraine have to live: how to they wash their clothes? how do they bath when it is cold with no running hot water? how do they cook without electricity? how do they clean their dishes (if they even have backup food to ration)? how do they keep themselves preoccupied without the internet or power? Better start thinking about "low tech" and "no tech" solutions now!!

I have uMatrix installed now. I have a few questions... First off, how do I check how many scripts are actually being blocked? What is XHR and do you have that blocked? Does not seem necessary to me for functionality so I blocked that. Another thing that confuses me is the default settings before you accept (green) or block (red) certain website functions. What happens when you leave a particular website setting unmodified (website functions neither blocked nor accepted)? Does it still permit them or block them if unmodified? Or will it only accept from the first party domain if left unmodified?

Onto another note: I had to post this comment in another browser due to the fact endchan's connection was failing on me after I configured my uMatrix settings. I'm having Déjà vu all over again.

>>19444 (update w/ uMatrix)

OK, I'm getting more used to this uMatrix add-on. Whatever the heck "XHR" is I'm no longer blocking it due to the fact denying it access was causing my endchan connection to fail while trying to post comments. I'm also hoping this uMatrix is blocking any third party access by default. As far as I can tell it is, but not completely assured yet. Wish there was a way to find out what exactly was being blocked and how many scripts blocked.

Reader 12/11/2022 (Sun) 10:33 Id: 84819e [Preview] No.19452 del
What I like about uMatrix is the fact you can turn it off in one tab when absolutely needed, yet have it activated for all the other tabs. For example if I wanted to archive an article, uMatrix can be turned off so it can pass through the cloudflare captcha, but news articles in other tabs still have it blocking a whole bunch of scripts and ads. Thanks for pressing me to try out uMatrix again Jerry. Glad I did and the more I get used to it the more I like it.

Yeah, the red shit is what's being blocked, and the green shit ain't; and yes, it takes an hour or so to start getting the hang of it. There's documentation on it too...
should get ya pretty far.

Addon has some some pretty powerful settings (more than just the default) that you might wanna try playing around with. It can get rid of much of what Bleachbit does, even on the fly. Play with it and see.

That's pretty much all I want for most sites anyway, all the third party crap blocked. Some sites that are pure cancer I'll end up using another web browser with Noscript to block everything, then I terminate the web browser process and proceed doing what is described below:

I already have a software program that does the job and it overwrites browser session data (.sqlite, .sqlite-shm, .sqlite-wal and .log files) 35 times with random junk data, then wipes them completely from the harddrive. I do it religiously: routine opsec. Nothing can really be more secure for a web browser then doing that.

Americans hate freedom with a passion and beg for their chains.

If our overlords decreed that everyone must buy a new snowblower this year, Americans would agree that the law makes sense and must be obeyed.

When guns are banned, Americans will scream with delight.

If Americans are forced to get microchip implants, Americans would fight to be first in line.

When Americans get sent to the concentration camps, they will insist that they live in a free country as they get pushed into the ovens.
