Advertising ID Troubleshooting

Ad_ID Retrieval (android)

The information provided below pertains to devices running Android 12, which is the 12th major release of the Android operating system.

  1. isLimitAdTrackingEnabled() Method: This is a method in the Android SDK's AdvertisingIdClient.Info class used to check whether the user has enabled Limit Ad Tracking on their device.

  2. Returned Value when isLimitAdTrackingEnabled() is True:

    If the method returns true, it means that the user has enabled Limit Ad Tracking, indicating a preference to limit the use of their advertising identifier (adid) for personalized advertising.

  3. Returned Value of 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000:

    In such cases, regardless of the app's target SDK level, the advertising identifier (adid) obtained from this API will be a string of zeros (00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000). This serves as a pseudo-identifier indicating limited ad tracking.
