It says my browser is not protected against anything (totally didn't expect that result). What are the risks, and do I have better options than running their privacy badger?

Odd. It also says my browser isn't protected against anything. I would have thought that google chrome would be more secure than that?

My Firefox browser got partial on ads and invisible trackers, both on my computer and on my phone. That's it.

The risk is being easier to track for targeted advertising. Privacy Badger isn't necessary though. The big things to do are get rid of Flash completely, turn off javascript by default (will break some sites), and adjust browser settings to resist finger printing.

By default a browser needs to just work, not have high privacy protection. A browser made by an advertising company naturally wouldn't protect privacy.

Funny thing is, this is the same result for both my Firefox browser & my Opera browser with VPN activated.

If you go into about:config on FF and set privacy.resistFingerprinting to true that should help your results.
