Proposed Group: Private User Agent Community Group

The Private User Agent Community Group has been proposed by Fredrick Andrews:

The Private User Agent Community Group is chartered to improve user privacy and user control by designing the User Agent to minimize fingerprinting and to improve the control the user has over information shared over the Web and to improve the security of the User Agent in these regards. The group seeks to standardize the designs necessary to achieve these goals, to develop extensions designed for privacy to mitigate inevitable losses of functionality, to foster consideration of privacy in the design of other Web standards, and to discuss and develop implementations and test suits. Mechanisms for expressing user privacy preferences to servers and content provides are outside the scope of this group.

You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, W3C launch the group and people can join to begin work.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
