—Open Source Tests of Web Browser Privacy

Tuesday, September 12, 2023 - 11:35 am11:50 am

Arthur Edelstein,

Abstract: is an open-source, comparative privacy audit of popular web browsers. The project subjects web browsers to automated leak tests and publishes the results weekly on a website and on social media. The goal of PrivacyTests is to help web browser users choose a more private browser, and to encourage browser makers to fix leaks of private information. The talk will describe how the tests work, how the test results are presented and shared, and the response from the community of users and developers.
