Browser fingerprinting is often used to covertly monitor and identify the profile of a user with, primarily, the purpose of avoiding overt cookie acknowledgement.
The process of using browser fingerprinting means that the identifiers, and ultimately, the data controller, is subject to both GDPR and the ePrivacy Directive.
From a user point of view, they would most likely be unable to actually know that this data is being captured, and therefore, be unable to ask for the data.
Many of those using the techniques of browser fingerprinting might not want to reveal their activity.
My question about this is, can browser fingerprinting ever be brought into line with the requirements of overt cookie acknowledgement, and will it?
