Parrot OS looks like Windows 10

Hi,I just started using Parrot Security OVA.I am running this operation system on VirtualBox.And I wanted to check how it looks like by other servers so I typed “What is my OS” on Google.And my OS looks like Windows 10 on https://whatsmyos.com/ website.My main machine is Ubuntu 20.04 by the way.Why does it look like Windows 10 for other machines?Why doesn’t that website say Linux 64 etc.?

Thanks a lot.

The useragent in your browser gives information about the host system… a lot other information is also exposed but that’s a discussion for a different time…and that’s what that website calls to enumerate the os/os type. This is easily changeable, if you really Windows as the os then the user agent was set to Windows.
