With all due respect, it looks like a lazy solution to me. Please let’s stop showing people popups and let’s find instead ways to prevent this information to cause any harm. Didn’t we learn anything from the cookies banners? Advertisers will track everything. If you don’t want websites to know your device orientation, stay away from the Web. MUCH WORSE THINGS HAPPEN OVER THERE! ✌️
