Using SignalPrint

After you have uploaded a set of customer account information or integrated with the SignalPrint API Events endpoint, either from the command line or through the SignalPrint API, you can see your customers’ event history on the SignalPrint page.

In the Verosint application, click SignalPrint in the navigation pane. You can click the (+) or (-) icons to zoom in and out. Click and drag in the graph to move the image.

SignalPrint Explorer

SignalPrint Explorer

Each account is illustrated as a navy blue dot and includes metadata about the account, such as an email, phone number, or both. Each instance of an event (login attempt from a new device, for example) generates a PrintID, or a yellow dot connected to the account. Each yellow PrintID is generated from a unique IP address or user agent.

Typically, a user might log in from one or two devices, from one or two locations. So a ‘normal’ print might look like a blue dot with two or three associated yellow prints. A cause for concern might be a single user with multiple print events that are somehow unique. This might represent a user sharing an account or creating multiple accounts.

Filtering and Tags

Icons at the top of the graph enable searching and filtering.

SignalPrint Tag Filter

  • Click the search icon and enter an email address, phone number, or print ID to locate a specific account on the graph.
  • Click the filter icon to show accounts based on a tag or set of tags, such as Breach, Invalid Domain, or Bot IP address. Verosint provides a number of tags based on possible account fraud, or you can create custom tags.
  • Click the calendar icon to view prints within a date range.


Custom Tags

You can add, remove, and replace tags for accounts with the Verosint CLI or API.

Every print on the page provides additional information about the account and associated events. A selected print is light blue to show that it is your focus.
