I added noscript to firefox then have been whitelisting scripts that are need to make the sites I visit work and I noticed that all scripts coming from google owned domains (google, googleanalitics, youtube, gstatic, googletagmanager) were automatically whitelisted. I had to change all of them to blocked.

Using Microsoft store apps as a protection aga…

Can websites like facebook track me better if I use their windows store app, as compared to using facebook on my primary browser (that I use for browsing the web)?

Here’s my hypothesis: When I sign into facebook on my primary browser, they can fingerprint it, and then for every other site I visit (that contains facebook plugin) facebook will know I was there (even after blocking third party cookies) by verifying the fingerprint. This explains how I have seen ads on reddit related to the content I see on reddit even in private browsing. It is embarrassing.

To prevent this, I should use a different browser for every site I sign into, such that its unique browser fingerprint is different from my primary browser, but that’s too much hassle.

Right now, I can see a UWP app for every major website, is signing into these apps a good idea? More concretely: can these websites fingerprint the UWP app? Can they have even better profile about my likes/dislikes?

PS: Adblock or browsers that auto-block ads/scripts are not a viable solution, they are against the website, the website may break unexpectedly or ask to remove adblock, this is why I asked this question. All I want to know is if I should sign into UWP apps or not, it seems like a good idea.
