@BugCode @Dirk41 Being non-unique wouldn't help you if you're the only one visiting that page at that time doing something specific. Also, IP address is still unique. Privacy is probably even harder than security.

Indeed. That what i was trying to tell. It's good to have semi-paranoid privacy settings etc,,, but it is better infiltrate to mass then you have better change to survive privacy jungle. Fingerprinting & privacy is pretty challenge for everyone. You have to make choice what is your aim. & Ip-adresses you have to VPN what serve you shared IP's, so there are many change.

Mate, just clear ur cookies and cache before make a second test. Scriptblocker does prevent some part of testes. & Yes, it is not absolutely block everything, it is altrouht impossible. But you could prevent it manually and some registery tweaking, but that doesn't pay the price of result. I have testing that panoliptic site few different browser and few days! And you can eaxample firefox do some about:config tweak etc and it count a lot what addon do you have and there are so many different fingerprinting techniques, so i can't count. Script based almost everything..

Trust me, you doesn't want to do like me and i tested many days this page and i got my best result if don't remember wrong little bit under 10 bits.

Here some pics few years ago; (with waterfox) if i remember right.


Trust me, it is not worth it, just keep ur sunglasses somewhere else than your eyes covered ;)

Sorry for the delay and thank you for your reply

I have to specify maybe that I use iOS app , but the features are supposed to be the same I think

I obviously cleared all data and close the browser ( I set incognito mode always on) and I got the same results with FP on or off

I will try on desktop

( as far as FF is concerned I use some tweaks : disable DOM storage , peer connections etc)

It seems to me that block scripts should be enough anyway. Because how do they get most of infos? Using scripts I think

As far as the "sunglasses" are concerned: I see some value : some malware target just some OS / browser so maybe in this way they can't get info about you machine.
Attackers can't know your os/ browser etc.

Almost everything ( I think ) works with scripts , so disabling them keeps you safer .

Extensions from Google Web Store works with this browser ?

No, at least not yet, instead it has built in security features like, HTTPs everywhere, script blocker, phishing /malware blocker and fingerprint protection and you can install a password manager of your choice from a list.

I've tried Brave because the promises sounded great but then I realized that it's just another Chrome spinoff:

"Eich and his team built Brave out of Chromium, which is the foundation for Google's Chrome browser, which leaves most of the actual development and security support to Google." See:
Brave browser promises faster Web by banishing intrusive ads

I already use Opera (based on Chrome now) and Iron (Chrome without calling the Google mothership) so after testing Brave a few times I returned to Firefox.

Providing a clean Google Chrome is still making a black box corporation own the browser market. It didn't work well with Microsoft and is likewise risky with Google. Thus I still prefer real open source software aka FOSS.

Just few semi-active devs. But i have been using it since it starts, just because i like the concept, just install and you have already secure/pretty privacy friend browser. If those guys just be able to pushing it, will be awesome. But all is voluntary, big thumbs up! I support it. Enough said. Thank you!

Browse Safer with Brave on Your Side!
At Brave, our goal is to block everything on the web that can cramp your style and compromise your privacy.
Annoying ads are yesterday's news, and cookies stay in your jar where they belong.

Brave blocks harmful advertising
There's a new ad game in town. It's called "Malvertising". The latest display ad technology can install malware on your laptop without your knowledge. But not with Brave watching your back.

Brave redirects sites to HTTPS
We've integrated HTTPS Everywhere into every Brave browser to make sure you are always moving your bits across the safest possible pipe.

Brave blocks Tracking Pixels and Tracking Cookies
Do you ever get that feeling that someone is watching you when you see an ad for something you bought a few days ago? We make sure you aren't being tracked while you shop online and browse your favorite sites.

Brave is open source!

Join us on GitHub and contribute to Brave as we build the web of the future.
We believe in having an open source community. It’s our web and we want to fix it as a team, so everything from our backend to the frontend is open. We are progressing quickly so expect to see new commits on an hourly basis.

Brave browser is open source based on it is supposedly a privacy-conscious browser.

So are Chromium, Iridium, SRWare Iron browsers.......but they do phone home to Google which means they are not so privacy-conscious despite being open-sourced.

Does anyone knows whether Brave phones home to Google?
