In second half of my interview with EFF’s Bill Budington, Bill helps us understand how we can at least attempt to disguise ourselves on the web and basically try to blend in with the crowd. We’ll also see how tools like EFF’s Panopticlick can hep us pinpoint the things that are making us stand out, which enables us to be tracked more easily. Finally, we’ll discuss several browsers and plugins that can help you preserve your privacy.
