iOS Native

Welcome to our iOS plugin designed to seamlessly integrate with the Bureau's Device Intelligence, enhancing the functionality of mobile apps or webpages.

Getting Started

To integrate our native SDK into your project, follow the comprehensive documentation provided below. Ensure a seamless implementation and unlock the full potential of Device Intelligence for your application.

Minimum Requirements

  • Xcode 11.0+
  • iOS Deployment Target > 13.0 & Mac OS > 12.0.
Permission TypeDescription
OptionalMonitoring the Battery - UIDevice.current.isBatteryMonitoringEnabled //
OptionalUser Current location - CLLocationManager.locationServicesEnabled() //
RequiredFor Advertising Identifier IDFA - requestTrackingAuthorization

Integration Steps

At its core, the solution functions through three straightforward steps:

  1. Start by implementing Device Intelligence + OTL SDK with mobile application.
  2. Initialize the SDK using either the Client ID or Credential ID. This enables us to gather user and device data. We will then thoroughly analyze and enhance the collected data in the background.
  3. You can then utilize our API to access insights, aiding you in deciding the subsequent actions for your user, whether it's permitting, obstructing, or redirecting them.

Flow Diagram

  1. sessionKey and userid are generated / retrieved by the client backend and sent to your application
  2. Your mobile application initialises our SDK through the init function by setting these attributes -
    1. Session ID (mandatory unique UUID)
    2. User ID (optional)
    3. Flow (optional)
  3. Invoke the submit function in SDK to pass the data to Bureau backend.
  4. Upon successful submission of the parameters, a callback is received in the SDK. The next steps can be taken based on the callback (success/failure).
  5. If the callback is successful, your mobile application relays the success to your backend
  6. Invoke Bureau's backend API /v1/suppliers/device-fingerprint to fetch insights
    1. Input :sessionId
  7. Based on the insights provided (fingerprint, and risk signals), you can determine the next steps for the user, such as allowing, blocking, or redirecting them.


Enable the WiFi Information

Before integrating our SDK into your application, it’s essential to enable Access to WiFi Entitlements in your Apple Developer Account. This entitlement is necessary for our SDK to retrieve information about the connected WiFi network.

Please follow the steps below to enable Access to WiFi Entitlements.

  1. Log into your Apple developer account.
  2. Navigate to the Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles section.
  3. Select your app and enable the Access WiFi Information entitlement. The Access WiFi Information entitlement is available in the Identifiers section.
Enable Access WiFi Information for the App ID
  1. Navigate to Provisioning Profiles and regenerate them, as existing profiles will become invalid after the entitlement change.
  2. Open Xcode, go to Preferences (⌘ + ,) → Accounts. Select your team and click Download Manual Profiles to fetch the latest profiles.
  3. Navigate to your project’s Target settings → Capabilities tab.
  4. Enable the Access WiFi Information capability to add the WiFi Entitlements to your project.
Enable Access WiFi Information for the App ID

Quick Start

1. Add Dependency

  1. SDK is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:
# Podfile
pod 'bureau-id-fraud-sdk'

#Add below lines to end of your pod file
post_install do |installer|
  installer.pods_project.targets.each do |target|
    target.build_configurations.each do |config|
      config.build_settings['BUILD_LIBRARY_FOR_DISTRIBUTION'] = 'YES'
  1. "import bureau_id_fraud_sdk" in your UIViewcontroller
  2. Info.plist -> Add below properties
    • “NSUserTrackingUsageDescription”
    • “NSLocationAlwaysAndWhenInUseUsageDescription”
    • “Privacy - Location When In Use Usage Description”

2. Initialise SDK

The SDK is initialized in the client app. Once the submit function is called, the data relating to the user and device is automatically synced in the background.

// Initialize BureauAPI Where ever you want AppDelegate or ViewController

BureauAPI.shared.configure(clientID: "***CLIENT ID**", environment: .production, sessionID: "*** SESSION ID ***", enableBehavioralBiometrics: false)

// clientID  -> Bureau Merchant Id
// environment -> .stage, .production, .sandbox
// sessionID -> unique String value
// enableBehavioralBiometrics -> true/false

BureauAPI.shared.setUserID("***USER ID***")

//assign the delegate where you want to get a callback response from SDK
BureauAPI.shared.fingerprintDelegate = self

BureauAPI.shared.submit() //submit device and behavior(if enabled) data to Bureau's backend using the submit function



Client ID and Session ID should be mandatory and session ID should be unique for every request.

Response returned from the SDK

The DataCallback added in the Submit function returns whether the device data has been registered or not.

// Should need to extent the PrismDelegate for your View controller
extension DeviceFingerPrintVC : PrismFingerPrintDelegate{ }

// onFinished Delegate will trigger after success or failure Fingerprint SDK completion 
func onFinished(data: [String : Any]?) { }

// “data” returning blow key values
// "statusCode"  -> Int? ( if statusCode == 200 or 409 “success” else “failure” ) 
// “apiResponse” -> NSDictionary?

3. Invoke API for Insights

To access insights from users and devices, including device fingerprint, and risk signals, integrating with Bureau's backend API for Device Intelligence insights.

Sample Request and Response

Below is a sample request and response for our Device Intelligence API. Refer to our Device Intelligence API documentation for more details.

Contact our support team at [email protected] to get your API keys and the production endpoint for the API.

4. Enable Local Signals (Optional)

By enabling local signals, our SDK can detect information about the end user's Apple device that could indicate potential security risks, such as:

  • Mock GPS: Indicates if the device is using a simulated location instead of the actual GPS.
  • Debuggable: Indicates if the app is running in debug mode, which can expose vulnerabilities.
  • Jailbroken: Indicates if the device has bypassed Apple's restrictions, potentially allowing unauthorized modifications.

Enabling Local Signals is optional, but it can enhance your app's security.

Follow the steps below to implement the LocalSignalDelegate protocol and handle these signals in your application.

  1. Set the Local Signal Delegate: Assign your class as the delegate in the SDK's initialization init function. This allows the SDK to communicate local signal information to your app.
    BureauAPI.shared.localSignalDelegate = self
  1. Implement the LocalSignalDelegate Protocol: Implement the LocalSignalDelegate protocol in your class to handle the critical signals.

Example Implementation

Below is an example of how to implement the LocalSignalDelegate protocol in a view controller.

   extension YourViewController: LocalSignalDelegate {
     // Method to handle mock GPS signal
    func deviceLocation(isMocked: Bool) {
        if isMocked {
            print("Warning: Device location is being mocked.")
            // Add custom handling code for mocked GPS signal here
        } else {
            print("Device location is not mocked.")

    // Method to handle jailbroken device signal
    func device(isJailBreak: Bool) {
        if isJailBreak {
            print("Warning: Device is jailbroken.")
            // Add custom handling code for jailbroken device signal here
        } else {
            print("Device is not jailbroken.")

    // Method to handle app debug mode signal
    func appDebugMode(enable: Bool) {
        if enable {
            print("Warning: App is in debug mode.")
            // Add custom handling code for debug mode signal here
        } else {
            print("App is not in debug mode.")
