Chromium callbacks to Google

April 25, 2019

Recently read that Chromium still has callbacks to Google, and here I was naively thinking that it was secure

Still not sure if Brave makes these callbacks, but that’s tomorrows question 😜

So all I keep Chromium about for was to purge Reddit posts via TamperMonkey; there has to be a bash or Python method that works?

& that’s when my search results turned up Shreddit: https://github.com/x89/Shreddit

Shreddit is a Python command line program which will take a user’s post history on the website Reddit, and will systematically go through the user’s history deleting one post/submission at a time until only those whitelisted remain. It allows you to maintain your normal reddit account while having your history scrubbed after a certain amount of time.

When it became known that post edits were not saved but post deletions were saved, code was added to edit your post prior to deletion. In fact you can actually turn off deletion all together and just have lorem ipsum (or a message about Shreddit) but this will increase how long it takes the script to run as it will be going over all of your messages every run.

I’ve installed this onto my Raspberry Pi, tried crontab to run each day, but settled on setting a command up on RasPi Check (Check the status of your RasPi) – https://f-droid.org/app/de.eidottermihi.raspicheck to run on demand over home WiFi lan


Update, received this response from the Brave team. Looks like Brave is free of Google callbacks and is tracker free to use 🙂
Really appreciate them getting back to me
