Get something unique identifier on a computer

Recommended Posts

Is there away to get something unique on a client computer?

 

I read about ActiveX but it is only works on IE. I need something that can work on other browsers also, maybe on PHP or on Javascript.

Can you be more specific? Not really sure what you're talking about.

I want to get something unique like MAC address of a client computer, that can determine each client uniqueness when visiting the site.

I can't think of anything unique. Not without resorting to something like Java or Flash to get actual computer information.

 

And no, you cannot get the MAC address with Javascript.

Anything that Javascript could give you can just be forged, so that is pointless. Though I can't think of anything useful it could give you anyway.

 

What exactly are you trying to do? Why do you need this?
