why is it calling home? Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

I was just about to donate but then I noticed this addon keeps calling home.
(check for update disabled)
----
Does mozilla "(addons->check for update disabled)" check for update on github.com ipv4 192.30.252.131? This is the IP taken from about:networking.

This addon does not phone home

Perhaps you are confusing it with mozilla's addon update checker but I can assure you it does not phone home. I highly encourage you to run wireshark and view the source code at https://github.com/dillbyrne/random-agent-spoofer if you do not believe me.

I will be requesting this review to be reviewed as it is a false statement. If you have an issue with RAS please use the issue tracker on github.

Hi Dillbyrne ,
Really thanks for your contributions.I have been using RAS for quite a while and it is really good.
Normally I use it for CPA offers testing.
By the way , I'd like to know if it is possible to buy a private version for my own specific purpose.

I love RAS! I've been using it for a long time now and it works wonders. I love the new look and the new options. I'm excited to see how RAS progresses in the future

Thanks

RAS has so much packed all under one roof. Like others reviewers, I tried similar addons and they all fell short. RAS just keeps on improving with each release. I recommend all users who like it to try the github version. It has much more features.

5 stars from me. Thank you for this awesome addon, it won me back over to firefox.

Thank you

Hi Baptumba. Thank you for your rating and your support. I released a new version 0.9.5.2 yesterday on github. A limited version for AMO is being worked on and will be available soon.

This addon not only spoofs the user agent but also the matching headers and it has tons of other features. Keep up the good work.

Thank you

Hello,
Some features DOES NOT WORK!
Including "Time Zone Spoofing" "Signature" (REAL BROWSER!)
Check with this:
http://ipduh.com/anonymity-check/
http://ip-check.info/?lang=en
https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/index.html
http://whoer.net/extended#

Forget about http://BROWSERSPY.dk/ as the most important "source of information"!
And probably there are many other 'tools'.

Hello deNn

First of all I already have an issue open for the browser signature at ip-check.info . I have tried to manually re-order the headers before sending but it does not seem to make a difference. That may need a patch to the firefox code itself.

Browserspy is not the most important source, I use that for gathering profile information as it has what I need for a profile in one place, rather than send users to 3 or four different websites.

Thanks for reporting the time issue. I will try to have a fix for it soon.

Please report bugs to github in future as it better suited to deal with them.

Thanks

Brilliant and vital add-on if you are concerned with privacy, I am using the github version alongside a few other privacy add-ons and its fantastic. Thankyou.

Hello dedy. The code for the random mobile option is already done and it will be available in the next version.

This addon does not deal with spoofing you IP address You will have to use some other software for that

Very Good Addon Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Really Good Addon, works perfectly since i wrote my last review.
But i have been noticing one problem of late. If i change my user agent to maxthon 4.2.0.4000 youtube search results are missing images
"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML like Gecko) Maxthon/4.2.0.4000 Chrome/30.0.1551.0 Safari/537.36"

Just see for example:
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=be+with+you+enrique+iglesias+

Though for older maxthon versions there is no such problem

Hello a a

Importing and exporting User agents? Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

This is an awesome plugin and I'm loving every part of it. I have one question, Can we able to import user agents xmi file on our own?

Thanks in advance!

Hello wow99

I have not added that functionality yet but it is planned in the future.

Thanks for your review

Interesting idea - thank you! Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

It's an interesting idea and seems to work so far in Firefox 31, in very limited testing. Thanks so much for thinking of this and doing it.

A few bugs and suggestions:

* Most of the user agents used by RAS are very rare, such as Epiphany 2.3 on OpenBSD. With that user agent, my browser is easy to uniquely identify, without the use of any additional characteristics. It would be useful if the RAS user could easily narrow the user agents to those currently in wide use. (I know RAS will change the UA, which definitely reduces exposure to this problem.)

* The list of user agents is outdated. For example, on Windows Chrome UAs are 1-3 years old (RAS uses versions 18-33; Chrome's current version is 40), and Firefox UAs are similarly outdated. Again, using obsolete and therefore less common UAs makes users easier to identify than if current UAs are used.

* Unchecking all those boxes one at a time to exclude UAs (e.g., I didn't want any Unix UAs) is slow. An interface to make it quicker would be appreciated.

Thank you for you review. An update to the AMO version is planned soon

Hello guanxi

This version is out of date. The github version has more up to date profiles and more options. Many of the old profiles were removed from the addon. I will add what I can from the github version into an updated limited amo version once I finish the current milestone for 0.9.5.2

The Github version also has a random option for each platform so you can limit it to Random Window's browsers only for example.

How too install from github ? Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Hello,

I want to run the latest version from github.

Would someone please be kind enough to post instructions on how to install Random Agent Spoofer from github.

I got as far as downloading the .zip file but what do I do next.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: 19 Feb 15, I have figured it out now.

Thank you

Hello Mc Fat Tongue. Thank you for you review. I'm glad you got it sorted. There are instructions on the project wiki on github for anyone else wondering how to install the github version

this is the last piece to somewhat online privacy! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

if you use add ons like ghostery, torbutton, etc. to hide your id and not get tracked by mind-controlling agencies like facebook you individualize your browser more and more...which ironically makes you beeing more and more identifiable via your browser fingerprint. This is the tool to prevent fingerprinting. yesyesyes! Thanks. Donated!!!

PS: One suggestion: I often have the problem that older browser profiels are beeing identified as outdated by the services I use (like googledrive for example). It would be really helpful to have an option for limiting the activated profiles to only up-to-date ones :)

Thank you

Hello spinmytree

Thanks for your review and your donation!

The github version has more up to date profiles. I will add a limited version of it on AMO once I get some of the issues I am currently working on sorted out.

Excellent Addon! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Perfect - a great contribution to the worldwide community for security and safety. Applause! So much things under one roof...

Thank you

Thanks for the Review Bruce. I'm glad you like it

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

So many other addons which claim to offer similar functionality fall short by only modifying the user agent . RAS does so much more and from my time using it, it keeps on improving with each release.

I would recommend to anyone concerned with browser fingerprinting and privacy to give RAS a try.


Thank you for you work dbyrne, you really did a top job with this addon.

Thank you for your Review

Hello Nikolai. Thank you for your review and support. I'm glad you like the addon

What a great way to protect my privacy! One problem though. I had to exclude iOS and Android, because I'm using a laptop and some pages didn't display correctly. I can also disable geolocation and spoof the accepted language as US English.

Thank you for your review

Hello Haw Creek. The random desktop mode was added specifically to address the issue you mention above. RAS still has lots more features due to come . Thanks for your rating and support
