An interesting take on browser extensions which hope to prevent fingerprinting
With respect to native browser functionality:
Browser vendors have already invested a considerable amount of work into anti-fingerprinting. However, they usually limited themselves to measures which wouldn’t break existing websites…
Privacy protection extensions on the other hand aren’t showing as much concern. So they will typically do something like:
screen.width = 1280; screen.height = 1024;
There you go, the website will now see the same display resolution for everybody, right? Well, that’s unless the website does this:
delete screen.width; delete screen.height;
And suddenly screen.width and screen.height are restored to their original values…
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
