Part of the Tor Project's mission is to further the popular understanding of privacy technologies, and we believe we can achieve it by combining educational efforts with usability efforts. Popular understanding is to not only be aware of such privacy technologies but to also be able to use and control them. With that in mind, we decided to integrate user experience research into our digital security training with a single program called 'User Feedback Program’.
In the past few years, a technique called browser fingerprinting has received a lot of attention because of the risks it can pose to privacy. What is it? How is it used? What is Tor Browser doing against it? In this blog post, I’m here to answer these questions.
The bugs are coming. We just don’t know when. This August, all donations to Tor will be earmarked towards bugs and maintenance. Your contribution can help keep us on our toes and ready to respond rapidly to critical security issues.
