Stop Fingerprinting

Post by tetwan » Wed Jul 23, 2014 10:10 am


I´m using Sanboxie for years and specially for surfing and get rid of all cookies.

Now there is so many new technique to track someone, so I´m a little bit worried. :)

Is it possible, that Sandboxie can support in the future some methods, so canvas fingerprinting or evercookies wouldn´t work anymore?

If this suggest is stupid, because it will never work - don´t beat me please :) If there is a possibility to - I think, it would be fine.

Greetings and best wishes

Sandboxie already handles Evercookies. When you delete your sandbox, the cookies are gone. Canvas fingerprinting does not store anything on your computer. It uses your GPU to generate a "fingerprint" that may or may not be able to uniquely identify you. There are several browser add-ons that will block this.
