Nobody actually reads through the privacy policies of every website, which is why researchers recently used artificial intelligence to create a tool that reads them for you and flags anything you might not be psyched to agree to.

Launched earlier this year as a part of the Usable Privacy Project, the tool uses artificial intelligence to crawl through 7,000 of the web’s most popular sites, including Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter, and parse their privacy policies. That data is available on the project’s website, where you can search for a site and see a breakdown of some of the most pivotal information included in that site’s privacy policy, including whether the company that owns the site is collecting data on its users, and whether it’s sharing that data with any third parties.
