Header type Response header
Forbidden header name ?

Note: Client Hints are accessible only on secure origins (via TLS). Accept-CH and Accept-CH-Lifetime headers should be persisted for all secure requests to ensure Client Hints are sent reliably.

Examples

Accept-CH: Viewport-Width
Accept-CH: Width
Accept-CH-Lifetime: 86400
Vary: Viewport-Width, Width

Note: Remember to vary the response based on the accepted client hints.
