WHAT IS THIS?​

A web header which relays information to the web server about:
  • your browser
  • its version

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This information can be very specific, and if customized can single-handedly identify a specific user’s browser.
Bits of identifying information: 6.25

HTTP_ACCEPT HEADERS​

text/html, */*; q=0.01 gzip, deflate, br de-DE,de;q=0.9,en-US;q=0.8,en;q=0.7

WHAT IS THIS?​

A web header that is used to let the server know:
  • what types of content the browser is able to handle. For example, a server can choose to deliver a CSV file if it sees that a user’s browser does not support XML.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This information can be fairly unique, and varies from browser to browser. However, this string doesn’t tend to change much over time, and can remain constant through many versions of the same browser.
Bits of identifying information: 6.41
One in x browsers have this value: 85.31

BROWSER PLUGIN DETAILS​

randomized by first party domain

WHAT IS THIS?​

A plugin is a small piece of software that helps a browser manage content it’s unable to process on its own.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

Browser plugins have been phased out over the past few years in favor of more regulated add-ons and extensions, but they persist in older browsers.
Bits of identifying information: 3.29
One in x browsers have this value: 9.8

TIME ZONE OFFSET​

-60

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric is a string which indicates your time zone, like ‘America/Los_Angeles’.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This metric can be used to figure out your general location, especially if you live in a time zone without many other users.
Bits of identifying information: 2.11
One in x browsers have this value: 4.32

TIME ZONE​

Bits of identifying information: 3.68
One in x browsers have this value: 12.79

SCREEN SIZE AND COLOR DEPTH​

1920x1080x24

WHAT IS THIS?​

The dimensions of your current browser window, and its color depth (determined by your monitor).

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

While this metric can supplement other information, it’s often too ‘brittle’ to be usable by trackers because users can easily change their browser window dimensions.
Bits of identifying information: 2.47
One in x browsers have this value: 5.55

SYSTEM FONTS​

Arial, Arial Black, Arial Narrow, Calibri, Cambria, Cambria Math, Comic Sans MS, Consolas, Courier, Courier New, Georgia, Helvetica, Impact, Lucida Console, Lucida Sans Unicode, Microsoft Sans Serif, MS Gothic, MS PGothic, MS Sans Serif, MS Serif, Palatino Linotype, Segoe Print, Segoe Script, Segoe UI, Segoe UI Light, Segoe UI Semibold, Segoe UI Symbol, Tahoma, Times, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS, Verdana, Wingdings (via javascript)

WHAT IS THIS?​

To determine your system fonts, tracking sites commonly display some text in an HTML <span> tag. Trackers then rapidly change the style for that span, rendering it in hundreds or thousands of known fonts. For each of these fonts, the site determines whether the width of the span has changed from the default width when rendered in that particular font. If it has, the tracker knows that font is installed.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

The list of fonts you have installed on your machine is generally consistent and linked to a particular operating system. If you install just one font which is unusual for your particular browser, this can be a highly identifying metric.
Bits of identifying information: 3.78
One in x browsers have this value: 13.7

ARE COOKIES ENABLED?​

Yes

WHAT IS THIS?​

Cookies are small chunks of information that websites store in your browser. They are primarily used to automatically remember things like your account login info, or what items were in your online shopping cart–in other words, they save your place. However, they can also be used to link all of your visits, searches, and other activities on a site together.
As a metric, “cookies enabled” is either ‘True’ or ‘False’, and means your browser allows cookies, rather than blocking them. Whether cookies are enabled can be determined with or without the use of JavaScript.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

Whether cookies are enabled or not provides a single bit of information: either ‘true’ or ‘false.’ However, this feature can be far more identifying when combined with other details.
Bits of identifying information: 0.17
One in x browsers have this value: 1.13

LIMITED SUPERCOOKIE TEST​

DOM localStorage: Yes, DOM sessionStorage: Yes, IE userData: No, openDatabase: true, indexed db: true

WHAT IS THIS?​

Despite the name, “super cookies” are not technically cookies. While they also store and retrieve unique identifiers, they are much harder to detect and delete in comparison.
Super cookies can monitor what websites you visit and how long you spend on them. Super cookies can also access information collected by traditional tracking cookies–such as login information, cached images and files– and reference it after the traditional cookie has been deleted.
Bits of identifying information: 1.55
One in x browsers have this value: 2.92

HASH OF CANVAS FINGERPRINT​

randomized by first party domain

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric is the unique identification assigned to your browser after a tracking site performs a specific test on the HTML5 <canvas> element in your browser.
Canvas fingerprinting. is invisible to the user: a tracker can create a “canvas” in your browser, and generate a complicated collage of shapes, colors and text using JavaScript. Then, with the resulting collage, the tracker extracts data about exactly how each pixel on the canvas is rendered. The operating system, browser version, graphics card, firmware version, graphics driver version, and fonts installed on your computer all affect the final result.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This is a complex and highly reliable fingerprinting metric. Canvas fingerprinting uses JavaScript, where a tracker renders a complex sequence of shapes, colors, and UTF characters to the HTML5 <canvas> element in your browser. This canvas is then serialized and hashed to provide the canvas fingerprint metric.
Small changes in video card hardware, operating system-level video drivers, and fonts installed will result in slightly different images being rendered to the canvas. Although different from one computer to the next, these settings are consistent enough on a single machine to clearly identify a user.
Bits of identifying information: 2.55
One in x browsers have this value: 5.86

HASH OF WEBGL FINGERPRINT​

randomized by first party domain

WHAT IS THIS?​

The 'hash of WebGL fingerprint' is very similar to the 'hash of canvas fingerprint' in its method of using your browser to generate graphics, extracting data from how each pixel is rendered, serializing the result and hashing it. However, it uses WebGL instead. WebGL is a JavaScript API for rendering interactive 2D and 3D graphics.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

The WebGL and Canvas fingerprinting results are highly linked, as they both examine browser-rendered graphics for tiny differences between users.
Bits of identifying information: 2.59
One in x browsers have this value: 6.02

WEBGL VENDOR & RENDERER​

Google Inc.~Google SwiftShader

WHAT IS THIS?​

WebGL is a library that allows browsers to render 3D graphics. As with other graphics-based tracking methods, trackers look for any tiny differences between how your device displays 3D on the web compared to other users.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This metric provides some level of granularity, depending on how unique your video card is. The WebGL Vendor and renderer is directly searchable using JavaScript, so trackers can access it without issue.
Bits of identifying information: 5.25
One in x browsers have this value: 38.05

DNT HEADER ENABLED?​

True

WHAT IS THIS?​

A web header that is used to let the server know:
  • if you prefer not to be tracked. This is usually either not delivered at all, or set to ‘1’. A setting of “1” indicates that your browser would prefer not to be tracked, but right now, most sites ignore this request.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

Browsers which set the DNT header to ‘1’ are fairly rare, and this can be an identifying metric. However, this should be left as the default for your browser.
Bits of identifying information: 0.99
One in x browsers have this value: 1.98

LANGUAGE​

de-DE

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric tests to see if you have an ad blocker installed, and is either ‘True’ or ‘False,’ and may differ depending on how you block ads.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This can add a fair amount of information about your browser fingerprint, especially if the language is uncommon for your timezone. Even when other fingerprinting metrics are protected by the browser or addons, spoofing the language settings can impede usability significantly.
Bits of identifying information: 4.98
One in x browsers have this value: 31.58

PLATFORM​

Win32

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric includes your operating system and CPU (central processing unit) architecture and is directly searchable by trackers using JavaScript.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This can either be very unique or very commonplace, depending on your particular machine.
Bits of identifying information: 1.4
One in x browsers have this value: 2.63

TOUCH SUPPORT​

Max touchpoints: 0; TouchEvent supported: false; onTouchStart supported: false

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric refers to the number of touch points on a device, such a tablet or phone.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

If you are using a mobile device, this may be very identifying depending on the hardware particularities. Your result will be 0 if your device has no touch points.
Bits of identifying information: 0.72
One in x browsers have this value: 1.65

AD BLOCKER USED​

False

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric tests to see if you have an ad blocker installed, and is either ‘True’ or ‘False,’ and may differ depending on how you block ads.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This adds little information to your fingerprint, but can be minimally useful in making you identifiable.
Bits of identifying information: 0.37
One in x browsers have this value: 1.29

AUDIOCONTEXT FINGERPRINT​

randomized by first party domain

WHAT IS THIS?​

Rather than rendering graphics like with canvas fingerprinting or WebGL fingerprinting, an audio sample is generated;That audio sample is then serialized and measured to provide this fingerprint.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

Like Canvas Fingerprinting, this can be unique depending on your audio card and drivers, and usually will not change over time. In modern handheld devices and laptops, graphics cards and audio cards will vary depending on the model, but not between devices of the same model. For desktop machines, especially ones with customized hardware, the audio card will provide new information useful for fingerprinting.
Bits of identifying information: 2.33
One in x browsers have this value: 5.03

CPU CLASS​

N/A

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric is just the manufacturer of your CPU. It is only rarely revealed by browsers.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

Especially on systems with custom hardware configurations, this metric can prove useful for identification.
Bits of identifying information: 0.15
One in x browsers have this value: 1.11

HARDWARE CONCURRENCY​

randomized

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric notes the number of CPU cores in your current machine.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

This can provide some additional information when combined with other fingerprinting metrics, but is not identifying on its own.
Bits of identifying information: 3.61
One in x browsers have this value: 12.25

DEVICE MEMORY (GB)​

8

WHAT IS THIS?​

This metric notes the amount of memory on your current machine, rounded to the nearest gigabyte.

HOW IS THIS USED IN YOUR FINGERPRINT?​

Like hardware concurrency, this is useful when combined with other metrics, but is not identifying on its own.
Bits of identifying information: 2.15

So, it's what i guess:
The test is still crap and looks like it prefers Brave for just few randomized values while lacking still many others.

Here some pictures (left is your result, right is mine):
1609173824156.png
Same value but different bits? Just no.

1609173860907.png
"de-DE" string is less bits then "de"? Just no.

1609173942281.png
Site wrongly detect RAM size

And AdGuard with NextDNS isn't detected too xD

Sure, randomized values are better than unique ones but these are created every time a new ID so websites switch to other techniques and no website would use such slow fingerprint like in this test. Both the old and the new one is useless.

This gives me doubts about the accuracy of this test.
EFF's test looks to be the same as before, just repackaged with a better description of tracking techniques and identifiers as @silversurfer posts. I just don't buy into these tests as having much value other than curiosity, maybe to some degree for complete newbies, except even then they may focus on results and not the explanation of tracking methods.

In the end, there is too much variability in testing and tracking methods, pollution and skewing of the test data, the low vs high entropy debate, etc.
I use any built-in tools, add an adblocker, etc. if needed, and call it a day. All the rest is for entertainment purposes only 😁, with which @security123 probably agrees.

One thing to note regarding the unique fingerprint - in my case it isn't a bad thing. I have privacy.resistFingerprinting enabled in about:config on my Firefox install meaning that my unique fingerprint changes on every single refresh or new website visit.
Strange... same settings as you and I have a non-unique fingerprint.

After all,
what is the safest browser?
What is the safest browser to hide from isp?
Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are both the most secure browsers, both including their own services (Google Safe Browsing, Smart Screen by Microsoft) to protect users while browsing with updated databases in real-time, furthermore sandboxing tech is stronger on all chromium-based browsers compared to Firefox.

Honestly, I have to mention, my browsers are Brave and Firefox, but that is just personal preference... ;)
