What is BrowserScan?

BrowserScan is an advanced tool that analyzes your browser's fingerprints to give you a fingerprint authenticity score. This score is pivotal as a figure below 90% flags potential privacy risks, indicating you may be divulging traces that could be exploited to track your online movements or link your multiple accounts, leading to possible account suspensions.

Hardware

The hardware section of BrowserScan offers an in-depth look at your device, which is essential for maintaining online anonymity. It can reveal the architecture of your device, whether Canvas and WebGL fingerprints, the number of CPU cores, and even detailed graphics card information. This section is especially important when using anti-detect browsers, as it helps to ensure that your simulated device profile is consistent and believable.

Software

In the section, BrowserScan examines the alignment between your IP address's timezone and your browser's settings. It also captures the current time from JavaScript, checks whether you have enabled the 'Do Not Track' feature, and reviews your cookie settings. These software details are crucial for creating a coherent online persona, especially when managing multiple accounts to prevent detection and potential account restrictions.

WebRTC and DNS Leaks

WebRTC is a technology that enables real-time communication directly in web browsers. While it provides useful capabilities, it also poses a risk of WebRTC leaks, which may expose your actual IP address regardless of using a proxy or VPN. BrowserScan specifically checks for these WebRTC leaks to confirm that your true location remains concealed, maintaining the anonymity required for your diverse online engagements.

DNS leaks are another common issue that BrowserScan addresses. These leaks occur when your device sends queries to your actual ISP's DNS server instead of the DNS provided by your proxy or VPN. This can inadvertently reveal your true location to websites, which is a significant privacy concern. BrowserScan checks for these leaks to ensure that your online presence remains secure and private.
