[Solved]Fingerprint protection failing? [android]



Hi community,
I visited this site and ran the test to see how secure Brave is on Android.

I discovered that even though my fingerprint protection is on, this site still determines my fingerprint on Android 4.4.2.

When I visit this site with my Linux install, I get the same results, i.e. no fingerprinting protection?

Brave: 0.17.1 
rev: 84dbc8e72cf13bbbecb639ac6ed31b004fff8ec6 
Muon: 4.0.3 
libchromiumcontent: 59.0.3071.86 
Node.js: 7.9.0 
Update Channel: dev 
os.platform: linux 
os.release: 4.4.71-1-MANJARO 
os.arch: x64

The good news is that Brave blocks tracking ads and invisible trackers :smiley:


Hey there…

I may not have a solution to your issue for the fingerprint…

However I wouldn’t at with it myself even for locking my phone… because if anything ever happened to me and I lost blood or died no one would be able to u lock my fone…

Ease consider this
Take care


Currently only WebRTC and WebGL fingerprint is implemented. Canvas fingerprint blocking is still under development.
