Last update: 2024-07-10 05:26:08 UTC


Laravel 5 Package to identify a User's Browser, Operating System, Language and Device, forked from unicodeveloper/laravel-identify

NOTE: Works on the latest laravel version


PHP 5.4+ or HHVM 3.3+, and Composer are required.

To get the latest version of Laravel Identify, simply add the following line to the require block of your composer.json file.

composer require consoletvs/identify

You'll then need to run composer install or composer update to download it and have the autoloader updated.

Once Laravel Identify is installed, you need to register the service provider. Open up config/app.php and add the following to the providers key.

  • Unicodeveloper\Identify\IdentifyServiceProvider::class

Also, register the Facade like so:

'aliases' => [
    'Identify' => Unicodeveloper\Identify\Facades\IdentityFacade::class,


To get started, you'll need to publish all vendor assets:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Unicodeveloper\Identify\IdentifyServiceProvider"
