What is browser fingerprinting?

A common investigative technique in law enforcement is to collect fingerprints at the scene of a crime. At the time of collection, it's not known who those fingerprints belong to, so the goal is wholesale collection for later analysis. Those fingerprints are later matched against a database of fingerprints with known owners to identify specific people.

Browser fingerprinting, a.k.a. canvas fingerprinting, works in the same way: the wholesale collection of as many browser identification points as possible at a website that can then be later matched against the browser characteristics of known people. In both types of fingerprinting, analysis may not reveal the identify of a person but can still show that the same person performed different activities.
