Canvas, AudioContext and WebGL Fingerprinting
raed last edited by
There are several methods that can be employed to fingerprint and track users online, among them:
Canvas Fingerprinting, which can be combated using Canvas Fingerprint Defender extension.
AudioContext Fingerprinting, which can be combated using AudioContext Fingerprint Defender extension.
And WebGL Fingerprinting, which can be combated using WebGL Fingerprint Defender extension.
The above extensions generate random fingerprints, helping to cover the tracks of the ultra paranoid among us.
Actually what is needed is that it makes all users have the same fingerprint.
However as long as these keep generating truly random fingerprints for every site, every time you visit, that is as good.
There is another extension I was looking at recently with fingerprint protection in it. I'll have to find it and post.
All of the above in 1 extension (and a whole lot more)
"Trace - Online Tracking Protection"
