  1. Web Browser FAVICON "SuperCookies" can TRACK people with UNIQUE IDs and BYPASS VPN protections https://it.slashdot.org/story/21/02/09/1920256/browser-favicons-can-be-used-as-undeletable-supercookies-to-track-you-online i do not think AirVPN does currently has a web browser add-on or plugin. And I do not know of any others that offer protection against this "new" TECH of FavIcon supercookies which use a UNIQUE ID to track people browsing on the web. So now what do we do?
  2. It seems that VPN-users can be identified by their web browser, monitor screen size, screen resolution, and color depth of their screen. So would it be a good idea to use several web browsers to further anonymize yourself? I have tried using Chromium web browser but privacy add-ons do not work at all! But maybe that doesn't matter because I'm already using a VPN? Are there people out there who use more than one browser with their VPN? Also, does periodically changing the screen resolution of my monitor cause a degree of obfuscation? I do know that changing the screen size of the web browser is a good idea as this is also recommended by tor-browser.
  3. 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.] T
