Amplitude integration with AppsFlyer

Introduction

This article is intended for customers who want to send attribution data to Amplitude.

Amplitude provides product analytics to help mobile and web companies understand user behavior. Product, marketing, and growth teams use Amplitude to discover and share insights about user engagement, retention, and revenue.

 Important!

Some media sources restrict sharing data with 3rd parties. AppsFlyer cannot share user level data of users acquired through these media sources with 3rd party platforms or services. All installs from such media sources are therefore sent as organic.
