Module: Core Keywords: closed-in-favor-of-gitlab

Review URL(s):



There are many relevant messages which could be shown to users who are not currently using one or more of the blocking 'features'

Our malware blocking feature is popular with other users. Check out this and more on our Options page.
Scared of malware infecting your computer? Block this and more on our Options page.
Sick of being tracked online? Block tracking and more on our Options page.

These messages will be most relevant once the new Options UI is available to the stable build.

The main growth goal of messages such as these, is to get users to interact more with the extension, via the Options page, Also, increased feature usage, can result in increased satisfaction---> increased shares.

What to change

Create 4 new notification mechanisms that will trigger different / new notification messages depending on which of the below situations is true for the user:

  1. a user is NOT using 'disable tracking'
  2. a user is NOT using 'disable malware'
  3. a user is NOT using 'disable social media buttons'
  4. a user is NOT using ANY of the additional blocking features

Each of the above should be a separate trigger, and trigger a separate message
