I did click on the link. The page opened and showed much non important stuff about my software to include a very long list about all of the fonts I could use. It mentioned one of my browsers as my browser. It was not the one I usually run.

A security program I'm running on this laptop popped up on the screen warning me that this program wanted to have access to additional info. I followed the security program's advice and did not allow this program to get any personal information.

So, yes, I took a risk. And luckily my anti malware, anti virus etc software warned me and suggested I not allow this program to go any further. I chose that option, so not that much was shown.

Panopticlick Shows How Easy Your Browser Is to Track:

Copied from Life hacker

You've disabled cookies and opened a private browsing window, so you're confident nobody can see what you're visiting on the web. The Electronic Frontier Foundation begs to differ, and their Panopticlick webapp will show you how track-able you really are.


No matter what reason you might have to disguise your web path from a site owner, IT administrator, or other snoopy type, they can see where you've been; the EFF's Panopticon tool is an eye-opening look at how identifiable you really are online. Using a Chromium build on Linux, for example, means that you're traveling the web with a certain set of installed fonts, usable plugins, and browser identifications, and from a particular time zone and operating system. Put it all together, and if you were wondering whether SuperPanMegaCorp could tell whether you hit two of their different sites, well—yeah, they probably can guess it's you.

Now that you're sufficiently reminded of the web's voyeuristic capabilities, you can read up on the theories and tech behind Panopticlick at the EFF's explainer. If there are other aspects of browsing that you wish more browsers were aware of, tell us about it in the comments.


It is legit. called my super geek said same..

This is about the stupidest thing I've ever seen on one of these boards. How long do you think you would last if you started to hurt the cartels business?

Pretty funny that this site tries to run an unidentified Java program after a few seconds. Any site that purports to be showing you your vulnerabilities should be a little more explanatory before that happens.

From their basic page, I see no identifying information that is any different or helpful to anyone else. Add-ons are never hidden, and having them or not makes no difference it you get hit by an exploit. Listing your system fonts is just silly.

But interesting, espiritu.
