I’m not sure if fingerprinting blocking is really working - please help?
When I go to https://panopticlick.eff.org using Brave on 3 different platforms, all with “Block All Fingerprinting” turned on, that fingerprinting web site sees info that Brave should be blocking.
Brave on MacOS, Windows, Android, I’m seeing tons of information that is unique on each platform - browser version, platform, screen size, touch points, memory, etc. When I use other browsers, I see the same info - so it looks like Brave is not fingerprinting.
Most specifically - as I connect and disconnect an external browser, the “resolution” changes each test - clearly transmitting that.
So I carefully read this => https://www.reddit.com/r/brave_browser/comments/aa1jtp/successful_fingerprint_blocking/ but I don’t think I’m seeing this.
How do we know it’s actually really working? If I’ve made a mistake or missed something I’m sorry, just not understanding.
