What type of bot detection tools are right for my application?
Stytch offers two forms of bot detection and prevention. Device fingerprinting is a fully passive approach that requires no user friction and therefore is recommended for all use cases where you’re looking to prevent bot activity on your site. Strong CAPTCHA is a lightweight image CAPTCHA but does require user interaction to solve the puzzle – it’s best suited for advanced bot prevention where your site is experiencing particularly sophisticated bot attacks, and you’re OK presenting a small amount of user friction through the form of an interactive challenge.
How does Stytch’s device fingerprinting solution differ from others on the market?
We think our product differs in three main ways:
- Stability: Our device fingerprints remain stable across incognito browsing, webviews, VPNs, changes to user agent or IP addresses, and more.
- Customizability: While we offer a set of default groupings for devices (based on level of trust), we give our customers the ability to customize the rules and set the actions taken based on the grouping that a device falls into.
- Control and security: For customers who want even more granular-level controls, Stytch also offers a unique identifier for each device, making it easy to determine how you respond to individual users’ devices.
How does Stytch’s Strong CAPTCHA solution differ from others on the market?
Most CAPTCHA solutions are still vulnerable to bot-hacking through a cottage industry called CAPTCHA farms. This is because of their public key architecture, that exposes key information to the public that can then be exploited by hackers. Stytch completely removes the public key component from all client-side browser environments, protecting your users from bots and CAPTCHA farms alike.
