Antifraud and digital fingerprint

How antifraud systems understand that you are changing your digital fingerprint?

On the net, you can often find user messages that different scanners detect the using of an antidetect. At the same time, its reason may be not only in the browser, but also in the actions of the user himself. We have collected all the basic parameters due to which it is clear that the user replaced the fingerprints and suggested ways to reduce the risk of detection. 🤏

**Why are there problems with emulation at all ?**😐

Any antidetect has two key functions:

Fingerprint change. The antidetect must change the real data of the user's digital fingerprint.

Emulation. Make you look like a regular user as much as possible.

The truth is that so far there is not a single antidetect in the public domain that could completely turn you into an ordinary user.

This is due to the fact that each anti-fraud system has its own unique working mechanisms: they analyze a different amount of data, in a different order, and draw conclusions from this data in different ways. And just because of this, it happens that one antidetect is better suited for conditional Twitter, and the other for Zuckerberg's social network.

At the same time, there are some recommendations, following which, you can significantly increase the quality of emulation.

The main parameters due to which the replacement of prints is visible.

Below, there are main parameters by which data spoofing is oftener visible:

1. IP is one of the most popular parameters with which problems arise.

What is the problem?

The real IP is not hidden. Some users think that antidetects change automatically their IP address. In fact, antidetects have functionality for changing data, but the new IP address itself needs to be taken from somewhere. You need to buy a proxy or VPN for it. Some browsers have the ability to buy proxies in-line from company partners.

Using a proxy of the wrong geo. For example, a user plans to work with Brazilian users and creates a Brazilian account, but buys Russian proxies. As a result, his data is defined as Russian, which can cause problems on the site.

The purchase of unsuitable proxies. In order to keep money, users buy cheap proxies or even use free ones. In this case, there is a risk that the IP has already been used in many places and blocked by most popular sites. Moreover, such proxies can be dangerous, because they can be used by attackers.

What to do with it?

When working with an antidetect, use a proxy, otherwise your real IP address will not be masked.

Buy proxies only from trusted sellers.

Make sure that the IP address matches the geo of your account.

Choose a proxy depending on your tasks. The most secure are proxies with HTTPS and SOCKS5 protocols. At the same time, if you need a lot of IP addresses for different profiles, it is better to choose mobile proxies. They are more expensive, but due to the ability to update the IP, they can be much cheaper.

2. Fonts - one of the main parameters that reveals the fact of imprint substitution.

What is the problem?

Each operating system has a set of used fonts: standard and system. Standard fonts include well-known fonts: Arial, Times New Roman, etc. Their peculiarity is that they are found in any operating system.

But system fonts can be unique for each specific system.

How it works: Let's imagine that the user has a Windows laptop, but in the digital fingerprint he indicates macOS. Due to differences in system fonts, antifraud systems will understand that it is encrypting its digital fingerprint. Moreover, the difference will be visible not only in the font set itself, but also in their design: macOS and Windows can display even the same font differently.

What to do with it?

If possible, select the operating system of the device from which you plan to work in the antidetect digital fingerprint.

If you have a powerful PC and laptop, install Linux as a second operating system, and then install the system fonts of the OS you need on it. Linux acts as an intermediate system between Windows and MacOS, so you can use it to smooth out differences in fonts.

3. Browser. All antidetects work on the basis of some standard browser. As a rule, this is Chrome, Chromium or Firefox. Chrome is the same Chromium, only with Google services enabled and some changes in the browser's internal functionality.

What is the problem?

Each browser has its own unique settings and features that make it different from others. Ordinary users will not notice these functions, but antifraud systems will definitely see them. So they will understand that the user is replacing the fingerprint.

What to do with it?

Make sure that your fingerprint contains data that matches the antidetect browser. This is shown in the Useragent. All manufacturers of antidetects announce which browsers they work on. For example, https://go.gologin.com/free-HJIGLJH runs on Chromium.


4. Characteristics of the device. Some users, in an attempt to convince the anti-fraud that their fingerprint is real, change the parameters of the device itself: Audio, Canvas 2d (just Canvas), Canvas 3d, etc.

What is the problem with it?

The imprint can become:

-unrealistic, because the parameters are interconnected in device fingerprints, a manual change may turn out to be a combination of data that does not occur at all or occurs too rarely.

-too unique, which will attract the attention of antifraud systems.

What to do with it?

Do not change the fingerprint settings that concern the device itself: Canvas, Audio, WebGL.

5. WebRTC - describes options for transferring audio, video, and content between browsers and applications. The project began to be used as a replacement for Flash.

What is the problem?

It often happens that this parameter shows your real IP, even if you use a proxy.

What to do?

If you see your real IP leaked over WebRTC, the best solution is to ask the antidetect developer what to do with this parameter. This is due to the fact that some anti-fraud systems see that a person changes IP, but do not take any action against the user. This is especially true of the current time, when many sources and sites in Russia are blocked.

6. Mobile device on the web. Some users try to emulate a mobile device using web versions of antidetects.

What is the problem?

Mobile devices differ from web versions in hundreds of ways, including screen resolution, network operation, data transfer methods, device type, and more. Considering that antidetects do not provide 100% emulation even on the web version, it will be even lower with the mobile version.

What to do with it?

Even if your antidetect has functionality to emulate the web version for mobile, it is better to use it with caution and not test it on accounts that are important to you. Otherwise, there is a risk that they can be sent for verification or even blocked.

And finally 👌🏼

Before you start solving your problems in a specific antidetect:

Thoroughly test the antidetect during the trial period. It is better not to use combat accounts right away, because. if the antidetect does not work, you can reduce the trust of your account or even lose it altogether. Even better, if the antidetect has a free plan: then you will have more time for testing. For example,https://go.gologin.com/free-HJIGLJH has a fully 14-day free plan for 1000 browser profiles with a promotional code ANTIKGOLOGIN14 . Enter the code after downloading the browser

Check the quality of protection through scanners. It's best to check through multiple scanners to get a better picture. At the same time, it is important that the crawlers give a general idea of what data the site's security systems can potentially see. In fact, each anti-fraud system has its own algorithms: the fact that the scanner shows 100% authenticity does not mean that you will pass the anti-fraud check and vice versa.
