Operating Systems

This report displays the most popular operating systems used by your website visitors during the selected date range. In addition, this report can be used to better understand the type of traffic (e.g., mobile versus desktop) that your site receives. If a marked increase in mobile browsing is noticed, changes to the site may need to be made to accommodate that shift. Note: Some user agents, such as Microsoft Web Service Client, do not send information about the platform they are running on. In those cases, they will be categorized as "unknown" in this report.

Note: This report can be added as a report item to a custom report. For more information on report items, refer to Understanding Report Items.
