Do AdGuard Users Want Additional Privacy Protection Tools

@Gass this approach requires quite a lot of servers to handle all the requests, store cookies etc. or at least it looks like this to me. @avatar do you have any comments?
Hi vasily_bagirov
I don't know - just the claims are bold, and I wished Adguard had more in advanced stealth streams to offer it's users.
Incognito, cloaked, virtualized, sandboxed as parts of the users pretense while their online activity is like that of the one-way mirror mentioned.

Could Adguard in it's stealth mode pull pieces of minimal related information of all it's users PC's in to a data base and jumbo mix it up, then sending it out from a server it owns to our PC's and disguise our online presents. Possibly something close to this ideal even then and rotating what information the web would see about us through Adguard's overlay. Then using a part of the users bandwidth at the same time to lower it's overhead? I'm really fishing here, but anything is possible or at least sounds like it would be.

Adguard in this sense could be as an add on upgrade and charge monthly/yearly for users wanting this protection to their Adguard license purchased, helping to aid Adguard's additional overhead expense of offering it to them.

1.st More prevention against tracking and profiling users offered in the Adguard program. Clean storage areas Flash, DOM, and anything else. https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/dev/Home/chromium-security/client-identification-mechanisms

Maybe fork some of the abilities from Bleach Bit in to an Adguard module.
Use the privacy cleaner to remove cache, cookies, and history to maintain your privacy and stop tracking.

•Firefox
•Google Chrome
•Internet Explorer
•Opera
•Safari
•SeaMonkey
•Flash
•Silverlight

2.nd Flash Tracking Cookies being placed on our computers, the contents are usually encrypted we don’t have the key so we can’t read the data.
So a warning - popup, as like a malicious site that gets triggered in AG, that this kind of flash cookie has been placed on our systems and allowing us to block it in the future and delete it right now of the warning received, or list & block that site in the future automatically.

3.rd Protect us against Canvas Fingerprinting by removing any canvas fingerprinting scripts, from the visited web sites data stream before it gotten to our computers. List the sites/domains using canvas fingerprinting and warn Adguard users via Adguard Assistant in someway - icon going deep red or a warning tone played. Simply refuse to load these website thus preventing the canvas fingerprinting scripts running by Adguard's early detection to web sites data streams. Suggest other sites that are similar in the content sought and that don't use a canvas method to ID and track.
Scary - https://forum.adguard.com/index.php?threads/roughted-bypasses-ad-blockers.23617/

Work on and Block all the other Fingerprinting technics - or as I've mentioned before white noise prevent accurate ID profiling by spoofing that data with all other Adguard users.

TODAY-
If anyone on the Internet happens to think they have any bit of assurance to privacy, they are sadly mistaken unless they browse privately using a VPN, and even then does their VPN provider sell this data they acquire from their users? Tor is not the answer to the average online user.
The average web user today wants their privacy back under their control, only giving out personal info. in a need to know bases - not mined and being amplified times the devices they own and the sites they visit, to end up of a profiled data pool and ID signature they'll never see to correct it's contents and be able to have it deleted by request. This has and will continue to affect their futures. Put the power of privacy back in the control of the web user, stop the covert knowledge gaining exploiting tactics of web espionage of the average user and help protect us against this network involuntarily collection and use of people’s data.

OF THE PAST-
It was almost 2 years ago, when Google proudly announced they could track users Internet browsing and actually relate that data to store purchases made by the person browsing the web. Charging a commission on those store purchases was going to be a new revenue stream for Google and their advertisers.

That story was on the Internet for about 2 days before it was pulled. It's thought they realized admitting that this technology already exists could result in a backlash and receive much bad press. Facebook stated they could do the same around that time in Google announcement. And that was without the use of Canvas Fingerprinting, both claimed, as well as Amazon and others have found better ways of tracking what you’re every move on the Internet was and even to sales purchases, being even in brick and mortar stores in an effort to obtain a sales commission for sites where the purchaser had seen the online advertising first.

Google and others carried it well beyond the canvas fingerprinting aspect. Possible backlash to that made them all realize they must do so in covert actions, so many will “share” this data behind the scenes where they can each mine the users data and tie the many bits and pieces together until they build quite a nice full profile about people.

There are ways of grabbing info from a computer, w/o canvas fingerprinting, that will give you a unique ID signature for that computer. Now gathering in all that users data from other sites where that same computer has made a purchase and you have a name, address, phone and credit card numbers now linked to a unique ID signature.
Buying/Selling of this kind of data is resulting in big money for likes of Amazon, Facebook, Google and others. Now tie in data from the brick and mortar stores sector, and you can now pair up people’s browsing habits with their in-store purchase habits. All nicely traceable because we are in virtually a cashless society today, which means almost everything people do is tracked and almost nothing that is done on the web or offline offers us anonymity more less privacy anymore.

The ability to gather and store big data about everyone’s actions on the Internet has become a SCIENCE today, and with the changes in Congress recently where your ISP's can gather and sell browsing data from their customer’s, this Pandora’s box (the Internet) is not just wide open, it has been completely emptied to regulations and controls.

Where is Adguard today in all of this technology advancements to tracking and profiling, mining users personal life's on line? Maybe Adguard's installed programs UI should give notifications of latest privacy news stories and preventative tips to extend our systems beyond what (at the present) Adguard is being able to help in guarding against.
Have a youtube channel with video's on the important aspects to settings of both in Adguard and on Windows systems to harden them with the smallest surface to have to defend. Would blow away the telegram channel wouldn't it... reaching non-Adguard users as well, young and old maybe never having herd of Adguard ;)

The thing that's most important is the young people don’t care about their privacy and behave in a manner that proves they don’t care. I'm thinking, if they were educated in school or offered a place on the web, to the harms and long time issues it's going to cause them in life, they would be more inclined to use proactive defensive measures in everything social, online as well as how they live and protect their digital life's in an ever advancing technology world.
""Most People say they care about privacy, but they upload practically all of their data to Facebook and likewise, it’s a contradiction. Google knows all about us because we give them our photos, we tag ourselves and the places we go to. People should decide if they want their data secure and if they do, it’s a matter of setting up your priorities- there is always a way around it.""



It's still a debate what this loss of privacy will mean to the world, I'm guessing my kids/grandkids will find out sooner than my last day here on earth.

Adguard shouldn't just be a browser extension and an installed program, it should be a movement of life principles with disciplines to one's digital privacy - heck a world philosophy to producing, educating and safeguarding privacy on the web in all the ways we use and view the on-line world - that connects the worlds populous... Adguard = assist - defense - guard
