Browser Fingerprinting protection

Post by 1john1king » Fri Sep 28, 2018 9:08 pm

Hello Everyone,

I’m using Mozilla Firefox browser in combination with Adblock Plus add-on. I have already contacted Adblock support but they directed me to this forum.

Subject is browser fingerprinting protection. Can you, as owner of the EasyPrivacy list, help me protect my browser from fingerprinting?

EasyPrivacy filter list in my Adblock Plus settings stops Fingerprinting and other tracking approaches from the websites I visit…but not always.

To be more precise when I go to https://panopticlick.eff.org/ or https://amiunique.org/ or…there are many testing sites on the internet
(those sites are testing safety, tracking… of my browser Mozilla Firefox 62.0.2 x64 on Windows 10 x64) it says that Adblock Plus protected me in all areas except fingerprinting so please do that and protect my browser from fingerprinting.

Thank you all in advanced for your time.
