74 (-3 which XDA related) third-party requests to 20 unique hosts (Google ; Criteo ; Facebook ; VigLink ; comScore ; Cloudflare ; Servebom)

45 third-party Cookies

Its hard to read such a "i dont care about user privacy" statement.

These cookies don't comply with the GDPR in Europe. Cookie compliance check isn't good.
It seems the similar law was passed in California. I guess the third-party cookies are gonna be off soon

One major privacy issue, is the google reCAPTCHA that xda is using for new users.

The scripts report every single use back to google, about who is using their system, which includes IP and device logging.

Since google is indeed one of the biggest privacy issues, maybe you should consider a more private captcha system.

Thank you.
