Does Better block trackers that steal user credentials

Does Better block trackers that steal user credentials as described here https://it.slashdot.org/story/17/12/28/0124233/web-trackers-exploit-flaw-in-browser-login-managers-to-steal-usernames

E.g. trackers from audienceinsights.net and behavioralengine.com.

I have the same question as Wim. Is there a way we could add these sites ourselves?

@aral blocked these yesterday. I’ll update the news section today.

(Open the app to get the latest blocking rules update.)

We’ve got these blocked with the rules ready to go, but are having some issues with our deployment server, and are just waiting for the hosts to get back to us. We should deploy these new rules today!

Done! You can get the updated rules by opening the Better apps.

Great! I really think you should make Better Blocker subscription based to fund the ongoing development of it.

We plan to do this, but it requires some development (and making sure we can work out something that’s fair for people who already bought the app!)
