Not only recent compelled cookies regulations have radically restrained their threats but also increased people awareness has played a fundamental part. This has placed huge pressure on enterprises to find alternatives to bridge this gap and satisfy business demands. Since then fingerprinting has gained enormous popularity. In this paper, we introduce 'nonym!zer' as a mitigation framework for browser fingerprinting. It helps to hinder or impede browser fingerprinting on desktop browsers that web servers use such as WebGL or Canvas technologies. © 2019 IEEE.
