User Agent String

Each HTTP request sent by the crawler and scanner contains a "User Agent" string, including information that may identify the browser name and version (for example: Firefox or Opera), the rendering engine upon which the browser is based (for example: AppleWebKit), and the type of system which the browser is running on (for example: Android).

The web server may present different content depending on the content of the User Agent string. For advanced testing, you may need to run scans with different versions of the User Agent string to make sure that all parts of the target are scanned.

Apart from the default, a number of pre-set options are available. You can also customize the User Agent string to any value of your choice.
