Hidden extensions in private window

  • Are the hidden extensions like Aliexpress Observer and Amazon Promotion disabled in Private Window? I don't see a way to verify that. Hoping somebody knows.

  • @Keepskite 24a2a36c-4b3b-4194-a456-97c0e994422d-image.png I guess that means they're active in incognito (private window)
    You can deactivate it though (uncheck it) and if we can trust Opera that means it's deactivated in Incognito mode.

  • for me Amazon shows disabled.
    Ali Express shows enabled, along with other unknown spying extensions

  • @xtorbax The trouble with that is when I open a private window and then check all those hidden extensions for which I have unchecked the boxes, those Allow in incognito boxes have been re-checked by Opera. So I guess the answer is they are active in Private window and are going to stay active. That's getting a bit intrusive in my book and I hope O comes to their senses on this.
