Authenticate Application by using IMEI

Authenticate Application by using IMEI

  

Hi Support,

We Have one requirement from a customer to implement
Authentication to Application using IMEI Code.
How do we access that particular information from Both Android & IOS?
It is commonly used Authenticating Application using Mobile Number.
But this time, it particularly requested to be SERIAL NUMBER.

Hello Adrian,

For Android, it seems you could wrap this Cordova plugin: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/28987477/how-to-get-imei-number-in-cordova (following the documentation here: https://success.outsystems.com/Documentation/10/Extensibility_and_Integration/Mobile_Plugins/Using_Cordova_Plugins)

Unfortunately, it seems iOS does not expose the IMEI code for you to read.

Dear Adrian,

I agreed with Craig that ios does not provide the IMEI code to read but you can get the device ID  by using the Common plugin > GetDeviceID.
