Citizen Ex

Every time you go online, you are connected through servers in different countries and jurisdictions. These virtual journeys are tracked, and your data, accurate or not, is stored around the globe. Citizen Ex is a browser plugin for Firefox, Chrome and Safari that reveals your ‘Algorithmic Citizenship’; in other words, it shows you what countries you appear to belong to, based on your travels online. The different virtual nationalities you take on may determine whether foreign intelligence agencies have the right to spy on your activities.
