Is Brave giving a false sense of security?

I have fingerprint protection turned on, Ads and tracking blocked, 3rd party cookies blocked and yet tests from EFF says that I have a unique fingerprint. Here is a screenshot.

Hi @ayatana. It is working as expected. Here is the link for reference

@ayatana you can expand full results and see that Canvas and WebGL are blocked. The test could probably report that your browser is unique, but this happens a lot for all browsers and is not necessarily indicative of fingerprinting in the wild since it is limited by Panopticlick’s sample size.
