We just added advanced device fingerprinting as part of our Online Vetting Platform and API. This gives clients enhanced levels of protection against fraudulent activities, registrations, and account hijacking.
The fingerprint is linked to risk level analysis of user data including IP, email address, phone, location information, domain, activity and frequency monitoring, geo-location analysis, and community data throughout our network of clients.
We are seeing a lot of bad actors jump between services using similar data patterns. The device fingerprinting automatically marks these users as very high risk and keeps them out of systems permanently.
The unique device fingerprint is connected to the Risk Score value. If the fingerprint has a positive average, the risk level is reduced. If the fingerprint has a negative average, the risk level is elevated and customers can quickly take the necessary action.
To download and use the fingerprinting in your vets, visit our API support page.
