Why does the Dashboard show a different serial number for my iPhone and iPad?

Apple prohibits 3rd Party developers like HiddenApp to collect and store serial numbers of iOS devices such as iPhone and iPad.

As a workaround, HiddenApp generates a random string of letters and numbers and assigns it to your iPhone/iPad upon registration of your device. 

If you have multiple devices and haven’t already, we recommend that you nominate a name for your iOS devices before registering them with HiddenApp. You can do it by following these steps:

  1. On your iOS device, go to Settings
  2. General > About > Name
  3. Change the default name of the Device and nominate something that will differentiate it from your other devices
  4. Tap Done
