Writing ๐Ÿ’พ

This is where I collect thoughts, URL and words on my web journey

Browser Fingerprinting - Master thesis

Since the IP address is basically a subset of the fingerprint, browser fingerprints can be considered personal data, and GDPR also applies to them. This means, in short, that websites have to ask for explicit user consent prior to collecting and storing their browser fingerprint.
