Get started with the Flutter SDK

The Adjust Flutter SDK enables you to measure attribution, events, and much more in your Flutter app. Follow the steps in this guide to set up your app to work with the Adjust SDK. You can also check out our example apps on GitHub.

The Adjust SDK supports iOS 9 or later and Android API level 9 (Gingerbread) or later.

1. Add the SDK to your project

To use the Adjust Flutter SDK in your Flutter app, you need to add it to your project.

To import the Adjust SDK to your Flutter project, follow these steps:

  1. Add the following to your pubspec.yaml file:
  adjust_sdk: ^4.38.0
  1. Navigate to your project and run the following command. Visual Studio automatically runs this command after you edit the pubspec.yaml file.
flutter packages get

2. Set up Android devices

Add Google Play Services

Apps that target the Google Play Store must use the Google Advertising ID (gps_adid) to identify devices. To do this, Add the following dependency to the dependencies section of your build.gradle file.

implementation ''
The Adjust SDK is not tied to any version of the `play-services-ads-identifier` dependency. You can use the any version of the Google Play Services library.

Add permissions

The Adjust SDK requires the following permissions. Add them to your AndroidManifest.xml file if they are not already present:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE"/>

The Adjust SDK includes the permission by default in version 4.32.0 and above. You can remove it by adding a remove directive if need to make your app COPPA-compliant or if you do not target the Google Play Store.

<uses-permission android:name="" tools:node="remove"/>

See Google's AdvertisingIdClient.Info documentation for more information about this permission.

Set up Proguard

If you are using Proguard, add the following rules to your custom Proguard file.

-keep public class com.adjust.sdk.** { *; }
-keep class {
    int SUCCESS;
-keep class {$Info getAdvertisingIdInfo(android.content.Context);
-keep class$Info {
    java.lang.String getId();
    boolean isLimitAdTrackingEnabled();
-keep public class** { *; }

If you are not publishing your app in the Google Play Store, add the following rule to your Proguard file.

-keep public class com.adjust.sdk.** { *; }

Set up install referrer

The install referrer is a unique identifier which you can use to attribute an app install to a source. The Adjust SDK requires this information to perform attribution. There are three methods you can use to gather this information:

  • Use the Google Play Referrer API.
  • Listen for the INSTALL_REFERRER intent with a broadcast receiver.
  • Use the Huawei Referrer API (only for Huawei devices).
Google has deprecated the INSTALL_REFERRER intent method of delivering referrer information for Google Play Services. If you are currently using this method, migrate to the Google Play Referrer API.

3. Add iOS frameworks

The Adjust SDK is able to get extra information when you include certain iOS frameworks in your app. These frameworks enable certain SDK features, but they are not madatory for the SDK to work. You can add the frameworks and then mark them as Optional in Project Settings > Build Phases > Link Binary With Libraries.

AdSupport.frameworkThis framework is needed so that the SDK can access the IDFA value and – prior to iOS 14 – LAT information.If your app is targeting the "Kids" category, you should not implement this framework.
AdServices.frameworkThis framework is needed to handle Apple Search Ads attribution.
StoreKit.frameworkThis framework is needed to access the SKAdNetwork framework and for the Adjust SDK to handle communication with it automatically in iOS 14 or later.
AppTrackingTransparency.frameworkThis framework is needed in iOS 14 and later for the SDK to be able to wrap the user tracking consent dialog and access the user’s consent response.If your app is targeting the "Kids" category, you should not implement this framework.

4. Initialize the Adjust SDK

Make sure you initialize the Adjust SDK as soon as possible in your Flutter app. To do this, initialize your config object with your app token and the environment you want to run your application in.

When running tests you should ensure that your environment is set to AdjustEnvironment.sandbox. Change this to AdjustEnvironment.production before you submit your application to the app store.
AdjustConfig config = new AdjustConfig('{YourAppToken}', AdjustEnvironment.sandbox);

5. Set up session tracking

You need to set up session tracking so that the SDK can pass session information to the Adjust backend.

Session tracking for iOS devices is supported, by default.

To set up session tracking for Android devices, call the Adjust.onResume() method when the app is running in the foreground and make a call to the Adjust.onPause() method when the app is not running in the foreground. You can do this globally or per widget.

class AdjustExampleApp extends StatelessWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new MaterialApp(
      title: 'Adjust Flutter Example App',
      home: new MainScreen(),

class MainScreen extends StatefulWidget {
  State createState() => new MainScreenState();

class MainScreenState extends State<MainScreen> with WidgetsBindingObserver {
  initState() {
    initPlatformState(); // <-- Initialise SDK in here.

  void dispose() {

  void didChangeAppLifecycleState(AppLifecycleState state) {
    switch (state) {
      case AppLifecycleState.inactive:
      case AppLifecycleState.resumed:
      case AppLifecycleState.paused:
      case AppLifecycleState.suspending:

6. Build your app

Well done! You should now be able to build and run your Flutter app. Enable logging to check for any issues. Check your logs to see the Install tracked message.

You are ready to start attributing your users with the Adjust SDK.

7. Add the Adjust SDK signature

You can use the Adjust SDK signature to sign all communications sent by the Adjust SDK. This enables Adjust’s servers to detect and reject any install activity that is not legitimate.

To get started with the Adjust SDK signature, contact your Technical Account Manager or

8. Test your integration

The Adjust SDK provides tools for testing and troubleshooting issues with your integration. To test your setup:

If you encounter any issues, email with all details and logs.
