Is FakeSpot a good plugin for my browser?

Episode 1533 (1:47:55)

Alexander from Los Angeles, CA
Fakespot

Alex has a browser plugin called Fakespot, which checks the reviews on Amazon to determine if they are legit or not. It promises to weed out the bogus ones. Leo says that's an interesting concept, but he has concerns that the plugin is selling his search data. He'll want to read the privacy policy and see if they are in compliance with the EU GDPR regulations. It will also send him targeted ads. It's not really a big deal, but at least he can opt-out. Of course, he could just go to Fakespot.com and check the reviews there without installing anything.
