Adobe uses several different methods to identify visitors on your site.

Example

VID

Visitor ID

s.visitorID = “abc123”

The full name of VID is visitor ID.

The visitorID variable overrides all other methods of visitor identification. The visitor ID is self-defining, and s.visitor ID must be set to have a value. Set the visitor ID in the cookie in the Adobe Analytics plug-in.

Adobe advises against using VID. Use the Adobe Experience Cloud Identity Service (MDID)instead. 

Don’t use VID anymore.

Do not use it. STOP.

The Adobe Experience Cloud Identity Service (ID service) provides a universal, persistent ID that identifies your visitors across all the solutions in the Experience Cloud. It can replace ID generation code for services such as Analytics, Audience Manager, Target, and other Experience Cloud solutions or features.

Experience Cloud Visitor ID is common to all Adobe products. To use this, you need to start the Experience Cloud ID Service Extension.
