Browser fingerprinting: Online anonymity elusive, Australian researcher finds

George Nott | July 21, 2016
Is your screen size identifying you online? No. But together with a bunch of other settings it does.

He hopes the project will raise awareness of fingerprinting and eventually lead to tools and extensions that help people defend themselves against it.

"Even among technically minded people fingerprinting isn't that well known," Kang says. "I just really enjoy having privacy. A lot of people they like attention but I don't like attention, I just want to be anonymous and have my privacy. I can't stand the idea of being tracked."
