Canvas Fingerprint Defender
Defending against Canvas fingerprinting by reporting a fake value.
What is Canvas Fingerprint Defender?
Canvas Fingerprint Defender is an Edge add-on designed to safeguard your online privacy. Instead of completely blocking canvas fingerprints, which might not be advantageous, this extension intelligently hides your real fingerprint by reporting a random fake value. As you traverse the internet, this add-on slightly alters the actual fingerprint and renews it each time you enter a website or reload a page. There are no settings or options to adjust - simply add it to your browser and begin your secure browsing experience.

It is important to note that, it does not have any settings or options to adjust. Simply add it to your browser and start surfacing the internet. If you want to test this addon, please visit a website that shows your fingerprint (i.e. browserleaks). Every time you reload the page, you will see a new fake fingerprint.
