@Shaun_Regenbaum I understand your concern! As far as how the ‘Block Paywalls’ app actually works under the hood, yes Incoggo is a local proxy, but no, under no circumstances do we ever reuse subscriptions to supported sites.
For the sites supported by Block Paywalls, there are a wide variety of techniques we employ (every site is slightly different), but all techniques are strictly employed on the ‘client-side’ (meaning everything that the application does, happens exclusively on your computer – similar to how other adblockers function).
Examples of some of the basic techniques we use are:
- blocking certain scripts from running
- clearing cookies
- hiding page elements
All of the techniques essentially boil down to preventing a site from tracking you individually.
It’s technically super similar to other adblockers you might use / other Incoggo apps, so no – you have nothing at all to worry about when using Block Paywalls!
