F5 Device ID+ delivers a real-time unique identifier for each device visiting web and mobile web sites to help fraud, security, operations and marketing teams better serve and protect their customers.


Understanding the devices interacting with your website brings with it tremendous benefits for the security, networking, fraud, and digital teams. But a reliable, usable, and effective device identifier requires moving beyond legacy approaches of digital identity and leveraging more advanced ones.  


F5 Device ID+

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.

How F5 Device ID+ Works

When each user visits your website, Device ID+ leverages JavaScript to collect information about the browser, device’s OS, hardware, and network configuration. These attributes feed into F5’s Device ID+ service built on Shape’s industry-recognized AI and machine learning capabilities. The data is processed in real time, and a unique identifier is assigned to the device.
