Chrome Can Protect You From Star Wars Spoilers

If you’re feeling a little nervous as we enter the home stretch leading up to the release of The Force Awakens, you’re not alone. Up until this point, the risk of spoilers was minimal, as only the non-disclosure-signing inner circle was privy to the film’s carefully guarded secrets. But in the weeks to come, advance screenings will start to take place, and you’ll need to do everything in your power to avoid accidental (or even malicious) leakage.

Fortunately, you have a few options. You could simply boycott the internet for the next month, steering clear of those surprise spoilers that seem to sneak up out of nowhere. Of course, that’s not a very practical solution for those with jobs, schoolwork, friends, etc. If you fit into at least one of those categories—most people do—there’s a new way to surf the net spoiler-free: the Star Wars Spoiler Blocker extension for Chrome.


Created by Max Al Farakh and Alex Jumasev—co-founders of the Jitbit Helpdesk ticketing system—this no frills extension simply checks any page you visit for Star Wars references, warning you before you go any further. Admittedly, this is likely to become maddening as we get closer to December 18th and The Force Awakens is mentioned everywhere, but that’s the price you have to pay for an unsullied Star Wars experience. Just know this: when you visit, you can always “Proceed Anyway” because we’re even more afraid of spoilers than you are!
