We talk about browser fingerprinting a lot without providing a lot of background information on what it actually is outside of brief overviews on our Firefox Privacy series of blog posts…
I know is imperative to not modify preferences on TB and MB, but what about these:`
I checked with creepjs and it shows the same results for trash, lies and crowd-blending score compared to vanilla MB.
This page won’t be for manipulating knobs on Firefox. We are not reintroducing that to Privacy Guides.
It will be about explaining:
- What fingerprinting is
- Types of fingerprinting, naive, vs complex (crowd)
- Various things that cannot be hidden etc
I have had some thoughts on this in Fingerprinting FAQ · Issue #1834 · privacyguides/privacyguides.org · GitHub
We want to also spend some time answers in this discussion:
incase someone is really into fingerprinting techniques here are some research papers
I would love to see this expand to cover more information about cross-site tracking, stateful tracking, navigational tracking, and other unintended identification techniques, such as supercookies.
