Is easy privacy blocking these services (AdThink and OnAudience). I wasn't able to find them in the list. These services will inject hidden forms into webpages and get your password manager to autofill them so that they can better track the sites you have logins for/visit.

As long as such 3rd party scripts are blocked by default, you're safe.
