Yandex already has something like that, not sure it works though. Besides internet is migrating to https anyway, since Google pushes it.
By the way HTTPS everywhere is not that reliable, it uses whitelisting, Smart HTTPS is better, it works on every webpage by default.

btw do you use yandex stable or beta?
Stable, I tried beta, because it is updated more often, but there were issues, not to mention enforced Yandex Protect, which I do not like.

If you use adguard,you can enable I don't care about cookies
I recently abandoned adguard, its malware filters are junk and it did not really do anything else. Replaced with Privacy Badger.

What criminal activities you are doing online to be worried about that?
You would surprised, what is illegal in EU these days, like spreading fake news. Malwarebytes blocks RT news, Twitter blocks KAV, etc.

it used to break many sites, may be that's why they chose to whitelist.btw you yourself acan add rules in https everywhere. I've never tried smart https, but would like to give it a try.

abandoned adguard, its malware filters are junk
I ain't saying adguard is great against malware, but it is one of the best adblocker out there. btw, adguard uses google api for detection of malware & phishing, somewhere I read it also uses yandex api- not sure though.

Yandex already has something like that, not sure it works though.
I'm using yandex 18.4.1.871, that feature ain't available to this version.

I do not block ADs, nor I want to, that is why it was so hard to find a proper anti tracking extension, since most block google by default.

Not anymore. Yandex uses only Sophos filtering now, like in this test, Google safe browsing blocked 27, Yandex/Adguard only 2.

I have the same version, Click to Show Advanced Settings and scroll to the bottom.

MS helped to arrest people dozen of times, it was all over the news, but I guess some people are only interested in security news. :D
There is a difference between helping authorities to catch serious criminals like pedophiles and Average Joe doing minor infractions.

Regarding MS helping authorities, our concern should be logging related, It's not that MS will just flush other infos which ain't crime related.

MS reported it on its own blog just this year, mostly for onedrive, but the same EULA applies to all services. But it was obvious before, since MS helped to arrest people dozen of times, it was all over the news, but I guess some people are only interested in security news. :D

2004 - Police: Microsoft helped catch suspect
2014 - Microsoft alerts police to child porn (onedrive)
===============

So Microsoft -- supporting the German police -- helped support our online security by helping identify the dork who created a major piece of destructive malware.

And Microsoft utilizes an automated program to sniff out child porn.

The real problem is that they don't do this enough... dates of links 2004, 2014.

BRAVO MS, well done, good work.

adguard extension is not the best adblocker because there is very limited customization. ublock is the best because users can add whatever filter they want easily and they can be updated automatically
adguard for desktop (paid) uses google safe browsing API (slightly delayed database), WOT and their own database but adguard extension for browser only uses adguard's database if I'm not mistaken, because most users have google Safe browsing in chrome/firefox. That's why it's far worse than other products

Has this always been free?
Yes, since 2004.
K9 Web Protection by Blue Coat Systems
October 29, 2014 ·
10 years ago today (62 dog years), the first version of K9 Web Protection was released with the goal of helping families protect their children online. Since then, it has been installed and used on over 5 million computers, tablets, and phones.
We started out wanting to create the best possible Internet filter, and to provide it to families and individuals as a FREE service. K9 has grown from supporting a single operating system (Windows 98), to being available on Windows, OS X, iOS, Android and Kindle Fire.
In addition, we recently expanded into online services with k9safesearch.com - which seamlessly integrates with K9 to provide a much safer search experience than Google, Yahoo, or Bing are willing to offer.
Not bad for just 10 short years! We are excited to continue helping you and your family for many more to come!
We have lots of amazing things in store for you! Just wait and see...you *can* teach an old dog new tricks!
