IS BETTER TO USE A NATURAL DEVICE ENVIRONMENT

Natural environment, but with different configurations, are the only way to pass the tracking services, because they have no way to match same device configurations again.

They also have a very clear statistic of these devices that are used daily and therefore can accept or reject certain fingerprints at certain time intervals.

If everything is natural, then all parameters will be matched, regardless of the measurements they make, the result will always be positive.

ABOUT METHODS USED BY TRACKING SERVICES

Advanced tracking services have a database with all the digital signatures of all devices.

They also have a very clear statistic of these devices that are used daily and therefore can accept or reject certain fingerprints at certain time intervals.

This system is very well thought out and especially helps in detecting false devices, because a fake device will never contain the digital signatures it has in the database or will not match the parameters of a device specific to the false digital signature.

If you are using a false configuration, you must have a digital signature specific to that configuration, because the tracking service will check if the digital signatures that match the configuration you have selected, will match with what they have in the database, and based of the digital signature there will be other checks that will need to coincide, such as flash parameters, webgl parameters, canvas parameters, windows version, javascript functions and browser-specific parameters, fonts parameters for the identified device, etc.

Therefore, it is very easy to discover the false configuration however good it is, and it can also indicate the real configuration of a user.
