Detected User Agent


What is a user agent?

When a browser or similar device retrieves content from a website, it identifies itself as an agent in the request header. The header includes a string that provides information about the application type, OS, software vendor, or software version of the requesting software User Agent. With this information, web developers can create more engaging and dynamic websites that provide unique experiences based on the agent accessing the site. This data is invaluable for web development, as it allows for a more customized and personalized user experience. To view the string and other information about your browser use our online My User Agent checker free tool.

What is the My User checker tool?

The online My User Agent checker allows you to view the user string and other information about your device. It is useful for troubleshooting website compatibility issues or for checking whether your browser is up to date.

A user checker may also use by website administrators or developers to test how their site appears and functions on different devices and browsers. By inputting various user strings, they can simulate different browsing scenarios and ensure that their site optimizes for a wide range of users.

Is it possible to change the user agent?

Yes, it is possible to change the user agent string of your web browser. Modern browsers have developer tools that allow you to modify the user string. You can access these tools by inspecting the web page. In the developer tools console, you can usually find an option to change the agent string. Some web browsers have extensions or add-ons that allow you to change the agent string. Additionally, you can change the user string by modifying configuration settings. For example, in Firefox, you can enter “about:config” in the address bar and then search for the “general.useragent.override” preference.
