What mobile on result page means?

Hello,

 

What does it mean when I select mobile on "segment" dropdown in the experiments window? How does optimizely knows if a user is a mobile user or not? Does mobile include tablets or only cell phones?

Level 2

Hi Rafael,

I could be wrong about this so take this with a grain of salt -

I believe mobile refers to both cell phone and tablets.

The way that Optimizely determines the type of user is by browser agent.

If this is incorrect, maybe someone can jump in and better answer Rafael's question.

Happy Testing!

Hi Rafael and Keith,
Keith, you are right! This includes both tablets and cell phones, and it is done via browser agent. In order to separate these out, you'll need to create an audience through a custom JS condition targeting screensize.
