How to Catch User’s Browser Information

August 23, 2022

Your user’s Browser Information can be crucial in some circumstances — for example, tracking issues on your website. The Browser Information provides you with data necessary to address the issues that your users are experiencing.

The Hidden Box widget is a good tool for the above purpose. It will provide you with the following data when your user submits the form:

  • Browser — The user’s browser.
  • OS — The user’s operating system.
  • Device — The type of device your users used to submit the form, desktop or mobile.
  • Language — The language set on their browser.
  • Resolution — The device resolution.
  • Timezone — The user’s timezone.
  • User Agent — This identifies the user’s device and browser that renders your website.

Below are the steps on how you can set up the Hidden Box widget in your form:

  1. In the Form Builder, click the Add Form Element button.
  2. Go to the Widgets tab.
  3. Search for Hidden Box, and click it to add.
