I have tried everything to stop canvas fingerprinting tracking in Safari 10. I have tried AdBlock Plus, AdBlock Ultimate, JS Blocker, and Ka-block. I don't see this tracking in Chrome. Any thoughts?

US only ?

"For security reasons, we have pretty strict credit card authorization
procedures, and one of those procedures is an AVS check, which we
require to verify and charge a card that is put on file with us.
Unfortunately, the majority of non-US card issuers do not support an AVS
check, so most international users are typically not able to sign up
and purchase a premium subscription."

I'sure the tracking in Chrome is there, check closer. Safari 11 (Mojave Edition) will supposedly ship with a mechanism to twart online fingerprinting -- let's see how it works when it arrives.

I found your post while looking for the very same thing after noticing that lots of websites that I usually visit with Safari are indeed canvas-fingerprinting me; wan't to see something funny?

MacRumors is fingerprinting us as well -- good one guys!
