Browser fingerprinting via Extensions and Login-Leaks
Keywords: Browser Extensions - Security and Privacy in Web Services - Social Networks Security and Privacy
Functional Description: Recent studies show that users can be tracked based on their web browser properties. This software is designed to conduct an experiment on such kinds of user tracking. In this experiment, we demonstrate that a Web user can also be tracked by
- her browser extensions (such as AdBlock, Pinterest, or Ghostery), and
- the websites she has logged in (such as Facebook, Gmail, or Twitter).
