    php script to stop browser finger printing

    Well this is a bit of a weird request but someone is claiming to have written a php script that run in the back of his website and stops all browsers from taking finger prints of his website.

    is this possible...?? he's trying to sell the script for $500 and that's alot to get scammed.

    The only way for your website to not have ANY fingerprints on it, is for your website to be on an inTRAnet.

    No matter what you do, robots.txt, everything-is-an-image, whatever, your website WILL be spidered / have some sort of fingerprint.

    My recommendation is to reevaluate what you would accomplish with this "script" and if you determine that this is ABSOLUTELY a real need and real enough to, 99% chance, lose 500$... then go for it.

    Edit:

    I may of miss-understood you. If that is the case then my other interpretation is that PHP does not have the ability to erase those variables.

    The script he is trying to sell me is server sided so i can't tell how it works. My goal is to stop browsers from sending information back to the browser companys.

    He showed me an example of it in action by running it with a phishing page and the script managed to fool my browsers phishing filter.
