AudioContext Fingerprint Defender

What is AudioContext Fingerprint:

AudioContext fingerprint is the audio signature of the individual machine. Websites harvest and and use that signature as an identifier to track a web user. It depends on the audio setting and hardware installed to a system. And you generally don’t change these things often, so it becomes an important fingerprint.

What does AudioContext fingerprint Defender do:

This extension let you easily hide your real AudioContext fingerprint by reporting a random fake value and protect your privacy.

This addon adds a small noise to the real fingerprint instead of blocking the AudioContext. It sends a new value every time you visit a website or reload a page. You can visit audiofingerprint.openwpm to test this addon.

 

Canvas Fingerprint Defender

What is Canvas Fingerprinting

Canvas fingerprint is a technique of tracking visitors through HTML5 canvas element. HTML5 instructs the browser to draw text and 3d graphic that is rendered into a digital token.

It is based on browser, operating system and graphics hardware. Only HTML5 canvas is not sufficient to make a unique identity but it could be combined with other things to make a unique identity.

What does Canvas fingerprint Defender do:

This extension let you easily hide your real canvas fingerprint by reporting a fake value. This addon doesn’t block the HTML5 digital token but adds noise to it.

 

Change Timezone

What is time zone:

Time zone is an geographical area where a uniform standard time is kept. Websites find your time zone through a JavaScript function that reads time zone from your operating system’s regional settings. The other way to find your time zone is through your IP address.

So if you are using a proxy in the Session Splitter profile, then you may want to match the time zone retrieved through above said methods.

What does ‘Change Timezone’ do:

When you activate this extension, it sends the timezone to javascript that relates to your proxy.

 

Font Fingerprint Defender

What is Font Fingerprinting:

Font fingerprinting is just collecting the fonts information from your browser, apps, system etc. and using it with other parameters to identify you as a unique identity. Websites do this by identification of fonts installed to your system and how they are drawn inside your browser.

What does Font Fingerprint Defender do:

It reports fake information about the fonts installed on your system.

 

GS Location Changer

What is GS Location Changer: 

If you want to see the search results for a location where you can’t go physically, you will need a tool to provide you the exact same results for the location, that can only be possible if you were there physically.

Example: Lets say you live in Chicago and you search for ‘dentist near me’. You would expect the list of ‘dentists’ which are actually near you. So depending on whether you live in East Garfield Park or West Loop, you will see completely different results.

GS Location changer can help you in this case. It is a browser plugin to emulate any location on google.com.

What does GS Location Changer do:

Google can know your location in two basic ways: First- your IP address, and Second- your Geolocation.
The second one has a stronger effect if your device has access to GPS.

If you search from a smartphone, Google will show you the most relevant results for your search. So if you are in West Loop and you search for the nearest dentist, it will access your GPS, know your exact location and show the dentists near you.

So if you are now sitting in NewYork doing a research on local results for a business in East Garfield Park, activate and use this extension to emulate the East Garfield Park and get accurate results.
You need to enter the location name in the ‘location’ field in the extension and enable the fake location. Google will get the GPS location for East Garfield Park and show the most accurate results.

 

MetaMask

What is MetaMask: 

MetaMask is an Ethereum based wallet to manage your cryptocurrencies. This extension allows you to access Ethereum enabled distributed applications or ‘Dapps’ in your browser.
This extension injects the Ethereum web3 API into every website’s javascript context so that Dapps can read from the block-chain.

What does MetaMask do:

MetaMask adds the functionality to the normal browser context. It requires permission to read and write to any web-page.

MetaMask lets users create and manage their own identities (via private keys, local client wallet, and hardware wallets like Trezor). So when a Dapp wants to perform a transaction and write to the block-chain, the user gets a secure interface to review the transaction before approving or rejecting it.

 

Session Splitter Authenticated Proxy

What is Authenticated Proxy: 

Modern browsers, by default don’t support Authenticated proxies. These proxies are proxies that require a username and password to function; so we developed an extension for this.
