A new study finds 3,000 websites on which third-party tracking companies scoop up what you type into forms in real time — even if you never hit submit. This happens on about 1,800 websites for E.U. users too, likely in violation of the GDPR.

@rufposten Very interesting study. This might not always be the intend by the website owners themselves. Shows the need for not trusting any JS snippets and browser extensions. To me, it also shows that content security policies (CSP) not only keep your site safer, but also the visitors.
