That is what it was made for, period. Using it for anything else is like saying your Ford Pinto makes a lousy wrecking ball. Incognito is not a recycleable VPN. It just stops cookies and history being saved on the browser after you close the window. Obviously the end server can still see your IP, and also your browser fingerprints because the device and browser settings don't change with incognito and hence it can obviously still match any incognito data to your regular profile.
This isn't difficult. Incognito is not made to prevent fingerprinting or your IP being available to the backend. I get only "An API error occurred! Please try again. Probably blocked by uMatrix running in my browser. If not by that, by Privacy Badger. Did as instructed and it didn't pick up the correct fingerprint between sessions - my default browser is Firefox Focus which is what Reddit opens the link in. I then opened a private tab in standard Firefox as instructed No dice. I'm guessing the client.

VPNs won't do anything protect you from fingerprinting, nor will clear history delete your cookies and local storage. If all you're doing is using a VPN, you're actually less private then someone using private browsing. IP is much less convenient for trackers and advertisers than cookies and storage are. Never seen a paywall based on them. Only thing IP is useful for is law enforcement. Do you think you are safe using private browsing or incognito mode?. Branch: master New pull request. Find File.

Just follow the steps above The video below explains everything: Yes, nothing is free How to stay safe? Technologies used Client.
Thanks to everyone who tweeted about this. Thanks to TechCycle for this demo video. Thanks to the Mozilla community for discussing privacy issues. Some users even reported that nothing private is even working correctly with the latest version of Firefox Focus.
They created an issue for it. Having trouble? Spread the word! You signed in with another tab or window. Reload to refresh your session. You signed out in another tab or window. Update issue templates. They expect magic. The same reason they buy Antivirus software to nanny and protect them from their own ignorance.
People always want to have their cake and eat it too. Kinda hard to make everyone happy here. Not gonna make everyone happy. Check your fingerprinting and spoofing your user-agent randomly. Would start wondering if my system has been bugged or something, lmao. Nothing Private uses the Client.
If I understand it right, nothingprivate. To see the different things Client. Digging into the data there, you might be able to find out how to reduce your uniqueness, or perhaps regularly change things so that your fingerprint changes. Fingerprinting is a really tricky one to deal with.
Tracking via fingerprinting is a method that requires making a lot of assumptions.
An earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of the coastal Northwest. The question is when.
But ultimately the effectiveness of it all is arguable. Anonymity is harder than security nowadays it seems. But lmao, good luck with getting that to happen right? I like your suggestion. And one issue would be if certain hardware in the readout are never found in the same system.
Is nothing private anymore?
The problems of course is that some sites use user-agents and fingerprinting to execute important functions or decide how it needs to display content. Furthermore, it would also make the gathering of statistics far less useful. Quite a headache for developers who rely on collecting statistics in order to know how to tailor their designs and troubleshoot problems, probably. And users of it would need to be able to troubleshoot and allow fingerprinting for individual sites that require an accurate readout. I know some that do. Having a readout that a tiny percentage have is infinitely better than having a unique readout.
