Spoof Timezone

This extension alters browser timezone to a random or user-defined value.

What is Spoof Timezone?
"Spoof Timezone" is a Firefox add-on designed to protect your privacy by spoofing your current timezone. It provides websites with a user-defined or random timezone instead of the real one, making it harder for tracking scripts to use this information for browser fingerprinting. The add-on also offers an option to check the visible timezone and a toolbar button to easily enable or disable the function.

Summary

This extension spoofs the current timezone provided by JavaScript to web pages. You can specify the preferred timezone in the options page and the add-on makes sure your real timezone is protected (invisible by websites). There is an option to ask the extension to provide random timezones as well. This option is useful to prevent fingerprinting scripts from using your current timezone as an element to uniquely identify your browser.

Notes:

  1. You can enable/disable the extension using the provided toolbar button.
  2. To test the visible timezone use the right-click context menu item
