For every app installation or conversion, AppsFlyer will determine which ad-network or source generated the install, and will then credit that source.

In Android, AppsFlyer uses the Google Play referrer parameter with fingerprinting and ID bases attribution technology backup.
For iOS, AppsFlyer runs NativeTrack™, a proprietary, patent-pending, set of heuristic algorithms combined with statistical analysis and machine learning, to analyze multiple data points from the device, fingerprints, traffic, profilers, carrier, application and others, to statistically determine, on an anonymous basis, the likely unique user of the device, app download and conversion. We assign an internal unique user identifier to the user profile developed for that individual. This user identifier is not based on a UDID or MAC address, and is completely anonymized. In addition, AppsFlyer supports ID based attribution when available, combined with fingerprinting providing the most accurate mobile attribution without compromising user experience or accuracy.
While PC browser and Android device fingerprints are pretty unique, the situation with iOS devices is different. AppsFlyer was the first to apply what the industry refers to as device fingerprinting. According to the data we collected over time, we developed something that goes beyond device fingerprinting. NativeTrack™ is proved to provide the most accurate conversion and installation tracking for native applications.
Yes. We know it’s usually a pain – not here! You will never have to integrate another tracking SDK again.
Our SDK is ultra-light (40kb) and the integration is literally a line of code.
This one time integration allows you to work with any ad-network and publisher and get the download & in-app conversion data in real time.
