What Is Mobile Device Fingerprinting?

Let's explore what is Mobile SDK Fingerprinting? This process performs 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.). Mobile device fingerprint risk scoring can accurately detect emulators, fake or spoofed devices, and known patterns of fraudulent behavior. Setup is quick and easy with an SDK integration for Android or iOS, which allows certain device info like network adapters and boot information to be analyzed, which can only be retrieved via an SDK fingerprinting app.

How Does Mobile Fingerprinting Work?

Unlike traditional JavaScript Device Fingerprinting, the process is slightly different with mobile device fingerprinting, which uses an SDK wrapper to automatically retrieve all relevant device data that can be calculated into a mobile device ID. Once the service is integrated with the iOS Device Fingerprint SDK or Android Device Fingerprinting SDK, a unique device ID will be generated to track the user's device for suspicious behavior patterns. This can include detection for device resetting, app install fraud, emulators, fake accounts, and similar abuse.

Android Device Fingerprint SDK

Utilizing the Android Fingerprint SDK, specific data like Android Device ID, Wifi SSID, Sensor Data, and similar Android only properties like device name and browser version 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.
