Experimental

The deviceMemory read-only property of the Navigator interface returns the approximate amount of device memory in gigabytes.

The reported value is imprecise to curtail fingerprinting. It’s approximated by rounding down to the nearest power of 2, then dividing that number by 1024. It is then clamped within lower and upper bounds to protect the privacy of owners of very low- or high-memory devices.

Syntax

memoryAmount = navigator.deviceMemory

Value

A floating point number; one of 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8.

Example

const memory = navigator.deviceMemory
console.log (`This device has at least ${memory}GiB of RAM.`)
