Spoof useragent in Tor private tab

linux

#1

The current Tor Browser uses the following useragent string

  • Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0

as Windows users, for every platforms.
I hope your Brave developers team can implement this for better anonymity in your Tor private tab feature.

Yes!! +1 from me.
UA strings are one of the most crucial things to be kept in mind when using tor as they act as a major component in fingerprinting the user & isolating their identity from the whole original majority Tor crowd.

We could change the Brave user-agent to resemble the Tor Browser, but Brave and the Tor Browser behave differently enough that that wouldn’t really improve anonymity — with some effort, Brave is even distinguishable from Chrome, on which it is based, so a completely different browser foundation like Firefox is going to be even easier to tell apart.

What Brave can do is make Brave users hard to tell apart from each other. If you want to blend in with Tor Browser users, the best way is to use the Tor Browser.
