All I saw was that it used its own search engine that doesn't allow you to change it (it isn't one i've heard of and i suspect it is owned by the company to generate profit/data for itself), the privacy settings the only thing that can be turned on is blocking facebook (no other sites/options on the free version), and the vpn while nice, i don't know if I trust using a vpn to a company that is so restrictive on the free version that everything it does is either force free users to use their services or ask to upgrade

on a side note, I've been using https://disconnect.me/ as my sole "security/privacy" addon for firefox for about a week now and seems to work ok. It seems to be a combination of ghostry and https everywhere with something they claim for security risk, I didn't understand this part well so not going to mention it

Use MaskMe to stay private when websites ask you for your personal information.

Tired of giving out your email address to a website and getting tons of email spam?

When an online form demands your email or phone number, MaskMe will spring into action - allowing you to choose between giving out your real contact information or creating “masked information."

MaskMe Features:
- Turns off unwanted spam or phone calls with one click
- Generates strong, unique passwords and remembers them so you don't have to
- Encrypts and stores passwords and online accounts in one safe place, for your eyes only

Any downside to using it?

Addition:
Just had a quick look to see if Adnauseam would work with uBlock Origin (my current adblocker of choice).
Appears not, as discussed here
