Opt-out of inspectlet in Your Browser

I’m going to keep this very brief. Please explore if you want more details. On the website, inspectlet states the following:

Watch individual visitors use your site as if you’re looking over their shoulders.

Inspectlet records videos [screencasts] of your visitors as they use your site, allowing you to see everything they do. See every mouse movement, scroll, click, and keypress on your site. You never need to wonder how visitors are using your site again.

I don’t care how successful inspectlet is, and how well it improves businesses because it’s coming at the expense of the users’ privacy. It’s creepy, and that’s all I’m going to say. My suggestion is to universally turn off session recording for your browser by visiting the link below. Websites that have embedded inspectlet code will record your session, after which the site owner can play back your session, all without you knowing anything about this. Nasty, isn’t it?
