Bot Detection vs open-source BotD library
BotD is an open-source library that we created to make it easy for every developer to detect basic bots in their web apps. BotD is available under a permissive MIT license and will always be free for developers and commercial use.
For more demanding applications we created a professional API-based bot detection software called Fingerprint Pro Bot Detection.
Fingerprint Pro Bot Detection combines vast amounts of auxiliary data that bots leak (errors, network overrides, browser attribute inconsistencies, API changes, and more) to be able to reliably distinguish real users and automated software, resulting in the detection of popular automation tools, their derivatives, and plugins. The service provides both browser and server-side APIs that make the process of bot detection fast and secure.

1. Fingerprint Pro Bot Detection uses the open-source BotD library as well as proprietary technology for increased accuracy and result stability.
2. Fingerprint Pro Bot Detection is GDPR and CCPA-compliant as the data processor. You still need to be compliant as the data controller and use the bot detection for fraud prevention under legitimate interest or ask for user consent.
