News & Updates

We've updated the site more deeply this time: now users can correct their website login leak results if they discover errors.

2017.04.04. – The login detection were updated, and it might change your uniqueness!

While working on the site, we've been seeing a bug in the Chrome browser repeatedly on one of our developer machines (details will come later!). As we've seen it appearing on another machine, we extented the test to indicate the presence of this bug. However, in order to do this, we needed to slightly modify our implementation – this can change your uniqueness, so don't be surprised!

We have presented our online test at the RightsCon 2017 conference. This also officially meant that finally our experiment is out! Please spread the word!
