Whitelist Test Devices

GetSocial Dashboard provides the option to whitelist devices for testing purposes.

The reason for whitelisting a device is because of the 30-days re-attribution window.

Normally, we won’t attribute the install to the referrer if we have already seen the same device active in the app within the last 30 days.

For Test Devices, all installs from whitelisted devices will be attributed, every time.
