Device fingerprinting

A process used to identify a device or browser based on its specific and unique configuration.

Unlike web cookies that are stored client-side (on a user’s device), device fingerprints need to be stored server-side (in a database).

Device fingerprints are used for analytics, ad targeting and Attribution.
