Thanks for the link to Blacklight — that's a really interesting website.

Looking at the Github for FingerprintJS there's an thread about the ethical implications of the project: #430.

The authors defend themselves by saying the library helps defend users from privacy violations by being open source, and therefore bringing to light these issues.

They build weapons so world can better defend itself against people who use their weapons.

@savannahjs Does fingerprintJS also maintain an opensource library for protecting users?
