Internet advertisers and data brokers want to know exactly where you go, how you act, and what you buy. Browser fingerprinting lets them quietly manage that tracking without you even knowing. So, how can you avoid being fingerprinted?
Switch to a browser with protection built-in or take advantage of existing browser-based protection.
Firefox’s Enhanced Tracking Protection protects against fingerprinting but does so simply by blocking access to known trackers.
The TOR browser routes all your web traffic through the TOR network but is notorious for slowing down connections.
Avast AntiTrack can help obfuscate your fingerprint by injecting false information into the elements of your digital fingerprint. Your fake fingerprint keeps changing, so trackers get nothing useful.
In the end, you have two main choices—choose a browser designed to foil fingerprinting or add an app dedicated to that purpose.
