Fingerprint Scanner

Build Status


I recently created a website where you can see your browser fingerprint and different fingerprinting-related signals like your IP address, your canvas fingerprint, your HTTP headers, etc. Some information is accessible both through a webpage and through APIs. Don't hesitate to bookmark it as I will add more signals and more content related to bots.

Library to detect bots and crawlers using browser fingerprinting.

You can see it in action on this page.

Attributes collected

Fingerprint Scanner relies on Fp-Collect to collect a browser fingerprint. Since the purpose of the library is bot detection, it doesn't detect collect unnecessary fingerprint attributes used for tracking.



npm install fpscanner

Detect bots

In order to use Fingerprint-Scanner your need to pass a fingerprint collected using the fp-collect library. Then, we can analyze the fingerprint with the scanner.

const scanner = require('fpScanner');
//fingerprint is the fingerprint collected with fp-collect
scannerResults = scanner.analyseFingerprint(fingerprint);

// Name of the first test

// Result of the test
// Either 1 (Inconsistent), 2 (Unsure) or 3 (Consistent)

// Data related with the test
// User agent of the browser

analyseFingerprint returns an array of analysisResult's objects. Each object contains the following information:

  • name: the name of the test;
  • consistent: the result of the test (CONSISTENT, UNSURE, INCONSISTENT)
  • data: data related to the test

Detection tests
