Laravel 5 Package to identify a User's Browser, Operating System, Language and Device


PHP 7.1+ 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.

"unicodeveloper/laravel-identify": "1.7.*"

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

  • If you're on Laravel 5.5 or above, that's all you need to do! Check out the usage examples below.
  • If you're on Laravel < 5.5, you'll need to register the service provider once the package is installed. Open up config/app.php and add the following to the providers array:
  • Unicodeveloper\Identify\IdentifyServiceProvider::class

Also, register the Facade like so:

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


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

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