Unique AndroidID Extension. (No Permissions Needed!)


(Cian) #1

Introduction. My first Extension.

This extension obtains the unique AndroidID, without any permissions. Obtaining the IEMI number, or the users name can have significant privacy concerns. This extension obtains a unique value from the device, that can only be changed when the device is reset to factory defaults.

This is a great way to track individual devices, without knowing who they are, or asking for scary permissions. This helps for GDPR and other type compliance.

A use case is you want to make sure that a device does not delete your application to get circumvent various things. I use it with firebase so I can track all sorts of stats, without ever knowing who the user is, and therefore I am very privacy compliant.

Instructions

Just call the GetDeviceID, and then apply the GotDeviceID(deviceid) to whatever variable you want.

Good for the first extension :+1:

PS. I realized that this extension is not obtaining IMEI. I thought as IMEI. Sorry :sweat_smile:

Can you create an extension so I can dislike it? Because that’s disrespectful and you’re gonna get treated the way you treat others. Don’t talk trash or you’ll be treated like trash. Great extension @cian! I don’t understand why spammers are coming here now and doing this, what’s their goal :joy:
