Study: User tracking in online banking

My study on third-party trackers observed on German online-banking portals is now available as a whitepaper.

The study shows that several banks employ trackers on their login or logout pages, and thus allowing the third-party trackers to infer custom of a particular bank for the tracked user. This ties in with my ongoing work on developing the Anti-tracking system available in the Cliqz Browser - which prevents the tracking presented in the study.
