Digital Privacy Tools: Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Introduces “Cover Your Tracks”

From EFF:

Today, we’re pleased to announce Cover Your Tracks, the newest edition and rebranding of our historic browser fingerprinting and tracker awareness tool Panopticlick. Cover Your Tracks picks up where Panopticlick left off. Panopticlick was about letting users know that browser fingerprinting was possible; Cover Your Tracks is about giving users the tools to fight back against the trackers, and improve the web ecosystem to provide privacy for everyone.

In this new iteration, Cover Your Tracks aims to make browser fingerprinting and tracking more understandable to the average user. With helpful explainers accompanying each browser characteristic and how it contributes to their fingerprint, users get an in-depth look into just how trackers can use their browser against them.
