Fingerprinting protection automatically reverts back to standard even after setting it to Aggressive

Even if I set block fingerprinting to Aggressive after some time it randomly reverts back to standard
@Mattches

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Set block fingerprinting to Aggressive
  2. Now just use the browser normally for some time
  3. Check again the block fingerprinting section

It will randomly revert back to standard protection

@byo78912,
Thank you for reporting. Can you please tell me what type of device it is you’re using when you see this behavior?

@Mattches, It happens when I clear browsing data especially site settings.

@byo78912,
To confirm, this only happens when you clear data/site settings?

@Mattches, yes, it only happens when I clear site settings

@byo78912,
That would make sense as that is where the Shields data on Android is stored. I believe that we have an open issue to change this so that Shields data and site settings are stored separately – I’ll see if I can dig it up.

@Mattches, Thanks for the help.
