FingerprintJS

Build status Current NPM version Monthly downloads from NPM Monthly downloads from jsDelivr

Discord server

FingerprintJS is a browser fingerprinting library that queries browser attributes and computes a hashed visitor identifier from them. Unlike cookies and local storage, a fingerprint stays the same in incognito/private mode and even when browser data is purged.

View Our Demo.

Quick start

Install from CDN

<script>
  // Initialize the agent at application startup.
  const fpPromise = new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
    const script = document.createElement('script')
    script.onload = resolve
    script.onerror = reject
    script.async = true
    script.src = 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/'
      + '@fingerprintjs/fingerprintjs@3/dist/fp.min.js'
    document.head.appendChild(script)
  })
    .then(() => FingerprintJS.load())

  // Get the visitor identifier when you need it.
  fpPromise
    .then(fp => fp.get())
    .then(result => {
      // This is the visitor identifier:
      const visitorId = result.visitorId
      console.log(visitorId)
    })
</script>

Run this code

Alternatively you can install from NPM to use with Webpack/Rollup/Browserify

npm i @fingerprintjs/fingerprintjs
# or
yarn add @fingerprintjs/fingerprintjs
import FingerprintJS from '@fingerprintjs/fingerprintjs'

// Initialize an agent at application startup.
const fpPromise = FingerprintJS.load()

;(async () => {
  // Get the visitor identifier when you need it.
  const fp = await fpPromise
  const result = await fp.get()

  // This is the visitor identifier:
  const visitorId = result.visitorId
  console.log(visitorId)
})()

Upgrade to Pro version to get 99.5% identification accuracy

FingerprintJS Pro is a professional visitor identification service that processes all information server-side and transmits it securely to your servers using server-to-server APIs. Pro combines browser fingerprinting with vast amounts of auxiliary data (IP addresses, time of visit patterns, URL changes and more) to be able to reliably deduplicate different users that have identical devices, resulting in 99.5% identification accuracy.

You can try Pro without usage limits for 10 days - no credit card required.

1. Pro uses the open source fingerprinting library as well as proprietary technology for increased accuracy and identifier stability.

2. VisitorIDs, in comparison to fingerprints, include server side techniques, are deduplicated and utilize fuzzy matching to result in a more accurate and stable identifier. Fingerprint hashes rely on an exact match across all browser attributes, making them less stable across > 4 week time intervals.

3. FingerprintJS Pro is GDPR and CCPA compliant as the data processor. You still need to be compliant as the data controller and use the identification for fraud under legitimate interest or ask for user consent.
