How to Catch User's Browser Info

Having every bit of information on an end user  using the form is crucial in managing user expectations and providing better user's experienced.

This guide will show how to get the most information out of your form users through the Browser being used.

OS: The user's Operating System

LANGUAGE: Current language being used

3. Set the BROWSER INFO option to YES.

    I've created a form and someone is using it in a wrong manner.
    I'm getting prank registrations and the user is actually molesting the team.
    Is there anyway through which I can get his/her information?

    Apparently Paypal does not allow payments from non members when surfing from a mobile phone (security measure). I would like to add a note to users about this, but only if it is relevant. In other words, Can I make a conditional message appear depending on whether or not the user is on a mobile device?
