Propose Store proxy

Propose a way to proxy the Extension and the store to protect our ip from the bad Google when we have to use a third parti extension.

not sure if i got you or not but if you use vpn or tor then google webstore would not get your real ip

for extension i do not think it can get your real ip if you use vpn or tor

brave has vpn but only for ios at least for now https://brave.com/firewall-vpn/

there other good vpn like https://protonvpn.com/

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Thanks for the answer but VPN are worst for privacy (see video who talk about that).
Actually they do it for safebrowsing (US → brave → google) i ask the same for the manifest check of the extension (not clone all the webstore), just like that when extension check update, they ask brave and brave ask google.

you welcome

which video could you send link to it?

now i got your point but they do not clone anything you just connected directly to the webstore

it’s why i ask a simple proxy of the update process.

It looks like Google may be planning to restart their initiative to enforce Manifest v3, and with that, there may come a need for many changes to how other Chromium browsers handle the store issues. Something to keep an eye on for sure.

thanks for the links but for the first video it said it does not mean all vpn

and not cause nordvpn get hacked and using bad tech does mean all is bad

not want to be looking like a selling guy for protonvpn but if you check their service you will notice they encrypt it and also their server is in swiss away from the 14 eye country (since you caring about privacy i assume you know what it mean) and they use We use only VPN protocols that are known to be secure - OpenVPN, IKEv2, and WireGuard. ProtonVPN does not have any servers that support PPTP and L2TP/IPSec, and they

sure there many other service

and the proxy option you ask would do the same thing as the vpn it would make the extension send the request to brave then brave send it to google and so on

but it will require a lot of work cause they have to develop something that act as webstore so the extension link to it and not sure if the link between the extension and webstore is hard link inside the extension or it just a configurations file that can be changed

yeah, and they respond to law enforcement and it does not prevent you to be unique with fingerprint, VPN are totally useless for privacy

Depending on how desperate you are to do this, you might be able to use a combination of methods to get an extension without providing an IP to Google.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/crx-extractordownloader/ajkhmmldknmfjnmeedkbkkojgobmljda may help

Or https://superuser.com/questions/290280/how-to-download-chrome-extensions-for-installing-on-another-computer

And/or Tor windows (won’t be allowed to install it directly, but perhaps download with the first extension).

Note that I have not tested any of this, but maybe in some combination and with a VPN the goal could be achieved. As I mentioned, depends on how far you’re willing to go with it.

As a ‘day-to-day’ method of managing extensions I agree, a proxy would be nice, as the above would be impractical.

for brave manifest V3 don’t generate any problem since they have their own adblock at browser level

any company respond to law enforcement but they report it and there nothing they will offer to them since everything is encrypted
also check this https://protonvpn.com/blog/transparency-report/

and vpn is not made for fingerprint it same as you install antivirus and expecting it to protect you from hacking stuff

That does not change the fact they are totally useless and lie on the “security” or “anonymity” they provide.

looks like we agree to disagree to some points
