Visitor ID counted as 2 unique visitors on the same day, same device


Level 1


I am an Analyst at Viacom and I am working on a project looking at user behavior on our app tagged with Adobe Analytics. What I see in the data is that sometimes, 1 visitor ID is counted as 2 Unique Visitors on the same day, on the same device. I am trying to find out how can this be possible? Any help is appreciated.

Thank You!

The visitor ID is it based off of the Adobe Cookie or something you capture in a custom metric?

Hi Arjun,

You must have captured Visitor ID into some evar/prop. So treat the visitor ID captured as a value for evar/prop. As Adobe identified visitor based on cookie (s_vi() or MID()). So 2 Unique visitor for same Visitor ID means, same value for evar/prop(captured as visitor id), 2 cookie got set.

This can happen if evar has a persistance whereas cookie set if image request cannot find related cookie(s_vi() or MID) on thebrowser.
