Hi.

I recently tested my browser at http://ip-check.info and discovered my browsers (I use chrome and firefox) sent heaps of information that amounted to a fingerprint. I recall another site that provided a score, along the lines of "Your configuration is relatively unique - one PC in two billion" - or something like that.

Without using JonDo or ToR - is there a way to configure a browser to reduce the amount of identifying information sent?

Thank you for your time - and apologies if this has been covered - I could not see a post that addressed this issue.

[And thanks to Airvpn and the Airvpn community who have lots of great suggestions and assistance.]

Just remove the TorLauncher addon from the Tor Browser and set the proxy settings to "none".

You will have a pretty hardened browser (based on Firefox) with very good defaults, without Tor.

 

The website you were referring to is this:

zhang888: now I understand the questions about stripping off Tor Browser. It's very easy in Linux (only disabling Torlauncher, changing the network settings and disabling remote dns), but when I tried the same in Windows it doesn't work.

Do you know the steps to do the same in Windows, and how to disable the about:tor webpage when Tor browser is launched?

Thanks
