Your web browser says a lot about you—the way you work, how you approach productivity, how you spend your free time.
Nobody uses their browser quite the same way. And honestly, it could be telling a story about you that you might have never anticipated.
That’s something made clear by a new tool, published by the Github user z0ccc, that highlights just how trackable you are based on your unique mix of browser extensions. And depending on how many extensions you use, things can break down quickly.
The Extension Fingerprints page built by z0ccc looks at the most popular extensions that are out there, whether you’re using them, and then lets you know how common they are.
And as it turns out, if you use even a modest number of browser extensions, you could be telling on yourself.
“Having 3+ detectable extensions installed seems to always make your fingerprint very unique,” z0ccc told BleepingComputer.
