Privacy badger blocking subdomains


#1

Hi guys.
Yesterday some of the functionality on hubspot stopped working for me. It turns out "privacy badger" chrome extension on windows marked your sub-domains (api....) as something to be blocked. Took me a while to figure it out, maybe you could reach out to them to exclude you by default if that's possible or try detect if it's blocked somehow and let users know how to disable it for your site.

Welcome, @dusan.

Thanks for notifying us! Apologies for any inconvenience.

I've been reading Privacy Badger's documentation and I think this may have only affected you. I say that because this FAQ claims that Privacy Badger does not maintain a "black list" of domains, but reacts to behavior it observes in your browsing environment.

That said, we'll definitely keep our eyes out for additional reports and reach out to Privacy Badger if it's merited!

Thank you Isaac,
Hopefully I'm the only one affected, even though this is very strange blocking behavior since I have been using the product for a couple of weeks now.
