recently I saw the following information about setting the unique ID for unique visitors in mobile apps.
"The SDK generates a unique visitor ID when an app is installed. This app visitor ID is stored within persistent memory on the mobile device and is sent with every hit. The app visitor ID is removed only when the user uninstalls the app (app visitor IDs persist through upgrades)."
It is accurate that a delete and reinstall of the app will cause a new visitor to be generated.
I need to clarify that while clearing app cachewill not cause a new Visitor ID to be created, clearing app datawillresult in a new Visitor ID being created. Also worth noting that the SDK uses no information about the device when generating the Visitor ID.
Hi all! I have a doubt similar to the initial one but the answers do not clarify my doubt. Checking the metrics of unique visitor and first lauches since I launched my app today I have more unique visitor than first launches, what is it?
Yes, when a user un-installs the app and re-installs it later, a new unique visitor ID will be created. But If your app opens mobile web content, you need to take extra steps to ensure that visitors are not separately identified as they move between the native and mobile web.
