Description

it might be safer for some users not to offer the option "allow" when the message "attempted to extract HTML5 canvas image data" is shown. what would be a reason to allow a site to to extract HTML5 canvas image data and thereby to allow to uniquely identify the user when the reason for using tbb is to attempt to hide the user?

It's necessary in some cases such as with some picture upload sites.
