Panopticlick.eff.org results gotten worse?

android
#1

I remember getting good results at least on first two test. Is this an issue at all? Bromite browser getting same results as Brave.

Did the issue present with default Shields settings?
Yes

Default states are:
Block: Ads/Trackers, 3rd Party Cookies, 3rd Party Fingerprinting
Allow: Encrypt Connections (HTTPS), Scripts,

What Brave version/Build are you using? (About Brave)
1.0.82 Android

Kindly see:

In essence, Panopticlick is being tricked by Brave. All Brave browsers return a fake, uniform fingerprint (it returns the same canvas hash). So even though it says that your browser is unique and highly fingerprintable, you are actually “unique” just like the other 5.5 million plus people using Brave.

“You are special, just like everyone else.”

3rd Party Cookie Blocking and Fingerprinting Does Not Seem to be Working

Thanks. Thats informative. But I’m more concerned about how well Brave blocks regular trackers. Because it used to get good score on that and now it gets “partial protection”.

And I like to know why Panopticlick says Brave doesn’t block acceptable ads tracking. I think Brendan Eich was speaking against them.

Cc: @brian @clifton who may know more about the ad blocking.
