1 - About

Fingerprinting a user. By collecting enough characteristics of a user's system, an individual user's browser's “digital fingerprint” can be computed.

Example:

  • fonts a user has installed
  • the exact list of which features a user agents supports.
  • the maximum allowed stack depth for recursion in script.
  • features that describe the user's environment
  • the user's time zone.

  • Aloodo is a tracking detection script. (designed to be blocked by all the popular Web privacy tools). You can use it to help your users learn if they are still vulnerable to third-party tracking, and start to do something about it.
