Implementing device fingerprinting scripts

Fraudsters often change or mask the information they use when purchasing to pass as a legitimate order. Device fingerprinting allows us to counteract fraud abuse by analyzing hundreds of device and browser data points to uniquely identify and track devices that transact on your site. This allows us to quickly identify and block known bad devices, allowing legitimate orders and customers through. And with over 10 billion tracked devices in our network, we are able to provide superior decision accuracy and fraud protection.

Adding our device fingerprint tracking script to your site will increase our ability to protect your store from fraudulent transactions.

Implementation takes less than 5 minutes and can be done by following the 3 steps below.

Get the tracking scripts

To simplify the setup process we have pre-generated scripts necessary for implementing device fingerprint on your store. In this section, we will cover how to get the necessary scripts for your store.

1. Log into your BigCommerce control panel, navigate to the sidebar, select Apps, and then My Apps. Next, select Launch to open the Signifyd console within BigCommerce.


2. Once in the Signifyd console, select Help from the upper right-hand section of the menu. Then select Device Fingerprint Script from the list of options.


3. The Device Fingerprint page contains two code snippets that will need to be added to your store for device fingerprinting to function properly. Keep this page open as you'll need to reference this later on in this guide.

Note: the provided scripts are unique for each store and should not be shared across stores.
