Scan as device/scan mobile websites

Last Updated: Aug 04, 2016 03:56PM CEST

You are able set what device your web site will think the traffic is coming from when we run a test. This is useful if you have mobile site that differs from the standard site.

The device options are:

  • Detectify - Default/a regular browser

  • Nexus 5 - Android phone

  • iPhone

  • iPad

  • Nintendo 3DS

It might be unlikely that you have a Nintendo 3DS-specific site, but hey, why not!

How it works

For the listed devices we will spoof:

  • User-agent string

  • Screen size

If there is anything else you think we should spoof/change, please shoot us an email at!

We will not emulate:

  • The HTML parser

  • The javascript engine

The goal here is to trick your web site into thinking we are, for example, a mobile device, not to emulate a phone and how it will render HTML.
