Enable Named Users

Enable or disable Named UsersA customer-provided identifier used for mapping multiple devices and channels to a specific individual. in Settings » APIs & Integrations » Named Users.


  • By default, Named User association occurs server-side, via the API. The project setting here overrides that preference, enabling client-side Named User association. See Named Users for requirements and usage information.

  • Before enabling client-side named-user association, consider your use case. When this setting is disabled, restricting association to server-side calls only, you have the added security of requiring your master secret to be verified after each call. While increasing security, you also lose the convenience of having your application automatically associate named users on login. Most apps do not require this additional security. But, if your app deals with extremely sensitive data, you may want to leave this setting disabled and associate named users exclusively through the API.
