Mozilla has rolled-out its Firefox 72 browser version this week. The new version brings enhanced tracking protection for users as it blocks fingerprinters by default. Plus, Mozilla has also fixed numerous security flaws with the latest release.
Mozilla has released the latest version of its Firefox browser with even better privacy features. With Firefox 72, Mozilla has launched fingerprinter blocking as a default setting.
Explaining details for browser fingerprinting, Mozilla stated in a blog post,
Fingerprinting is particularly risky for users’ privacy because it can even work with private browsing. Fingerprinting does not rely on cookies. Rather it tracks the devices at large.
While Mozilla already introduced fingerprinting blocking as a custom privacy setting, with Firefox 72, it is available by default. It means the new browser protects every user from fingerprinters without having the user to meddle with settings.
Regarding how this will work, Mozilla explained,
Mozilla also fixed numerous security vulnerabilities with Firefox 72, as revealed from their advisory.
