Transparent Edge can use the User-Agent header to determine the type of device that is connecting and categorize it as a desktop, mobile, or tablet.

To identify the device, Transparent Edge includes a header called X-Device in both the request to the origin and the response to the client. This header can have three values:

  • desktop

  • mobile

  • tablet

Force device (feature available on request)

Even if the device is detected, it's possible to, for instance, force a mobile device to display a desktop version. We do this using the Force-Device cookie. If this cookie is present, it takes priority over X-Device.
