Identifying apps users


#1

Hi everyone,

We’re currently working on sessionizing our apps data and I was wondering what user identifier to use when the user is not yet logged in. We could use the apple_idfa and the android_idfa but is it a best practice? Is there a device_id you can get?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help,
Nico

Hi @nico - both of those are possible. The tracking SDKs also generate their own device identifiers in com_snowplowanalytics_snowplow_client_session_1.user_id. To set this you need to ensure that the client session context is enabled.
