Browser fingerprinting stands for collecting information about you through your device fingerprint, which conveys the following data: your OS, keyboard preferences, hardware, geolocation, timezone, display size, browser, device memory, vendor, and many other attributes. Some advanced websites even know what apps you installed on your PC. All this data helps identify you out of a crowd with up to 99% accuracy.
Many people wrongly think they may go under the radar by using proxies or VPN services. The problem is, the two only change your location and encrypt your traffic — you are still at risk of being detected by your fingerprint. Not convinced? Although there is no browser fingerprinting test helping you check browser fingerprints (how and what information is collected exactly), you can at least see what data your device transmits.
