How to use this Web Extension
Global Consent Manager will do almost all of the work for you. Your consent is managed on every supported website.
If the domain you are on is registered by Global Consent Manager, it will not show consent dialogs on first visit.
If so, you can toggle the button labeled "Block Consent Dialog" to hide or show consent dialogs on this page.
-If the toggle switch status is "ON", supported sites will proceed normally.
-If the toggle switch status is "OFF", supported sites will not provide consent dialogs.
If you see a consent dialog on first visit, the site is probably not registered by Global Consent Manager.
In this case, please click the button labeled "Report Missing Site..." and present an issue on GitHub.
This will be automatically populated, but feel free to customize it.
Note: The button will change its label depending on the domain.
