Panopticlick: How Unique – And Trackable – Is Your Browser?

Screen Shot 2014-07-20 at 10.17.23 PM

So, I came across this site run by the EFF that tells you how unique your browser configuration is, which in turn tells you how much information is shared with the sites you visit. Apparently mine is “unique.”

Is your browser configuration rare or unique? If so, web sites may be able to track you, even if you limit or disable cookies.

Panopticlick tests your browser to see how unique it is based on the information it will share with sites it visits. Click below and you will be given a uniqueness score, letting you see how easily identifiable you might be as you surf the web.”

    My score was one in 6,227 with 12.6 bits of identifying info. I wish the result page had an average or ‘normal’ to compare yourself to. Simply by having Javascript disabled (using NoScript Firefox addon) blocked 5 of the 8 fields tested in the result page. When I retested with Javascript activated the site gave me an invalid security certificate warning (like the one I get here on my phone) and the test site was blocked by 3 other security features, so I just left… :-/
