The component provides a convenient way to retrieve information from the client (user), including the IP address, country, and device. It's very fast thanks to caching. Mobile Detect library is used to determine the type of device. The Sypex Geo database is used to determine the country by IP address.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

composer require pendalf89/yii2-clientinfo

or add

"pendalf89/yii2-clientinfo": "^1.0.0"

to the require section of your composer.json file.


'components' => [
    'clientInfo' => 'pendalf89\clientinfo\ClientInfo',

You also can add DocBlock into Yii.php file for IDE autocompleting.

 * Class WebApplication
 * Include only Web application related components here
 * @property pendalf89\clientinfo\ClientInfo $clientInfo
class WebApplication extends yii\web\Application


It's very easy to use:

$isMobile = Yii::$app->clientInfo->isMobile();
$ip = Yii::$app->clientInfo->getIP();
$country = Yii::$app->clientInfo->getCountry();
$isFinland = Yii::$app->clientInfo->isCountry('FI');
