Note: Device ID+ has moved to Volterra (now part of F5). If you are a new Device ID+ customer and have not yet performed the onboarding process, you can onboard by clicking here. If you are already an active Device ID+ customer on F5CS, F5 will contact you once your migration to Volterra is complete.
F5 Device ID+ is a real-time, high-precision device identifier that utilizes advanced signal collection and proven machine learning algorithms to assign a unique identifier to each device visiting your site. Deployment is simple, with immediate benefits for the security, networking, fraud, and digital teams. Never has understanding the unique devices visiting your applications been so easy.
F5 recommends deploying Device ID+ JS on all the web pages of your application.
The diagram below shows the basic data flow for Device ID+.
Device ID+ data flow:
- During page load, Device ID+ JS is loaded asynchronously to collect all the required telemetry with minimum performance impact.
- Device ID+ JS sends an API request with telemetry to the Device ID+ service on the F5 cloud. The device identifiers are computed on the F5 cloud and sent back to the client in the API response.
- Device ID+ JS writes the response in a cookie.
