What is Canvas Fingerprint?

This is your fingerprint, rendered using the HTML5 Canvas (JavaScript) element. The hidden text image / 3D image is displayed in your browser, which is then converted to an identification code. Differences for different users are achieved due to the fact that different browsers, operating systems and video cards have slight differences in rendering of the same element.
