Computer ID is a system generated identification number that allows for the following:

  • Distinguishing specific computers and their configurations connected to your website
  • Tracking the total activity of any connecting device regardless of its IP address

TraceMyIP generates a computer ID based on the following data:

  • Connecting ISP data
  • Connecting organization data
  • Connecting network variables
  • Computer variables such as
    • Browser specifications
    • Operating system specifications
    • System specific variables
  • Geographical position of the connecting device

The computer ID will stay the same as long as the connecting device has a persistent configuration. When an IP address of connecting device has changed, the computer ID will stay the same.
