What is a digital fingerprint of a browser?
Browser fingerprint is data about the bot’s computer and browser. You can get it by requesting it during web page loading. Digital fingerprint includes dozens of different parameters, such as the info about the operating system, the amount of RAM, the device’s screen resolution, font settings, and much more.
Highly complex mechanisms are created nowadays, making it difficult to detect a browser fingerprint, but their implementation requires skills and resources. Most ad clickers don’t use such tools, and they are identifiable.
Detecting Incognito Mode
Incognito mode (private browsing) is a browser mode, allowing to surf the web without leaving traces. Your clients rarely use this mode, but bots frequently do.
Detecting Automation Tools
In 95% of cases, click fraud occurs through automation tools (Chrome Headless, Playwright, PhantomJS). Ordinary users don’t use them on a daily basis, so we immediately block the source if we detect visits from these solutions.
Detecting Virtual Servers
Click fraud can be made from the virtual servers running in the “cloud” (for instance, under VirtualBox, VMWare, or Parallels – virtualization tools). You must agree that an ordinary user will not come to your website from a virtual server.
What does the bot browser fingerprint look like?
It’s a unique sequence (hash) of characters and numbers that precisely identify the device (browser) from which the bot visited your website.
The browser’s digital fingerprint is made of a 32-bit hexadecimal number of the b2cf59b36581399ebf54d4ab425ac4a7 type, obtained from processing all data received from the browser. The received browser fingerprint allows tracking users on the Internet with up to 94% accuracy.
You still may want to ask –
Why determine the browser fingerprint?
HOW IT WORKS?
It is quite easy to use fake email addresses, cookies or User agents, etc. to commit a wide variety of fraudulent actions. The question is whether fraudsters change their equipment. Although the answer may be “yes”, changing equipment is quite troublesome and costly, so scammers resort to it in extremely rare cases.
Our service scans every device and gets an enormous amount of parameters, including an operating system, browser and its version, installed plug-ins, screen resolution, platform, IP – address, and many others. Using the combination of these parameters, our system generates a permanent user ID. This ID can then be used to detect the same machines even if they try to hide their identity.
Imagine that we found a bot on some website earlier, recorded its “digital fingerprint,” and saved it in our database. You connect your website to our security system, and that same bot comes to you. We don’t need to re-analyze it. We simply compare “digital fingerprints” and instantly block this bot!PROTECTION ALGORITHM
We analyze bots on hundreds of websites daily and have accumulated a large amount of data, which we use to service new customers.
