Mozilla Firefox will protect users from surveillance and hidden mining


Future versions of the Mozilla Firefox browser will receive built-in protection against hidden mining and surveillance. This is reported by the resource The Verge.

To protect users' privacy, Mozilla Firefox will block attempts by websites to digitally fingerprint a computer based on its configuration data. These fingerprints allow trackers to track visitor activity even after cookies have been deleted. The new anti-tracking system is already working in test builds of Firefox Nightly 68 and Beta 67, and later it will appear in the final versions of the application.

At the same time, the developers plan to implement an automatic blocking of hidden mining in Mozilla Firefox. Technically, this feature is already available in the browser, but by default it is inactive.
