Let's explore what is Mobile SDK Fingerprinting? This process performs a device analysis using an SDK extension of your mobile app to generate a unique Device ID based on the mobile phone's hardware (memory, graphics card, processor, etc.), software settings (time zone, language, etc), and behavior patterns (carrier, cookies, session IDs, etc.). By analyzing the device ID against billions of other device IDs, it is possible to associate the device with emulators, spoofed devices, and known patterns of fraudulent behavior. Setup is quick and easy with an SDK integration and allows certain device info like network adapters and boot information to be analyzed, which can only be retrieved via an SDK fingerprinting app.
- Screen Resolution
- CPU Details
- MAC Address
- Kernel & Boot Data
- Emulator Detection
- Audio Drivers
- Time Zone
- Battery Health
- Memory Specs
- Build Data
Utilizing the Android Fingerprint SDK, specific data like Android Device ID, Wifi SSID, Sensor Data, and similar Android only properties can be analyzed to produce the device ID and provide accurate fraud scoring. Based on recent threat data across the IPQS network, an Android Device is 27% more likely to be fraudulent than an iOS Device. Our analysts suspect this is because it is easier to obtain emulators for Android devices to create fake devices on the fly, and switch mobile device profiles in just a few seconds.
