Definition Edit

Browser fingerprints are

the specific combination of characteristics — such as system fonts, software, and installed plugins — that are typically made available by a consumer's browser to any website visited. These characteristics can be used to uniquely identify computers, cell phones, or other devices. Browser fingerprinting does not rely on cookies.[1]
