How to set up Fingerprint to run smoothly in Brave

Brave is a privacy-focused browser based on Chromium. For our purposes, it behaves similarly to Chrome with a strict ad-blocking extension installed. That means it blocks the agent-download and identification requests to Fingerprint CDN and API.

To reliably identify Brave users, you need to use a cloud proxy integration like Cloudflare, CloudFront or Azure. Using a proxy integration allows you to route Fingerprint HTTP requests through your own domain, which prevents Brave from blocking them. See Protecting the JavaScript agent from ad-blockers for more details.
