A number of fingerprint countermeasures have claimed that their countermeasures can prevent the user away from fingerprint tracking. The research attempts to prove their claims and requires to study the effectiveness of their fingerprint prevention and observe the results of side effects after defence in order to assist the attentive user to know the limitation of current approaches. Under investigation, all countermeasures will be installed on the web browser and visit the developed hybrid fingerprint website in order to know the efficiency of the fingerprint resistance of all types. The research shows that all fingerprint countermeasures nowadays are unable to obstruct all kinds of the fingerprint tracking and countermeasures that use the blocking technique appear more side effects to the web browser than other techniques. Also, the increasing number of fingerprint attributes are increasing cause of unusual combination inside the Internet browser.
