  • This works. Check customer_visitor table in admin panel. But it doesnt have all the data you want. That you need to code differently. Apr 5, 2017 at 13:44
  • Try this method getVisitorData() to get Data from session object. Check what you can get. If not... try to get data from request header like http_user_agent to get the browser, remote_addr to get the IP address etc etc. Apr 5, 2017 at 13:52
  • Magento\Customer\Model\Visitor is the class where Magento is setting visitors information by using setVisitorData inside initByRequest() function. Apr 5, 2017 at 13:54

Ok. So try this. But this wont save your data in customer_visitor table at least not the fields i added.

public function initByRequest($observer) //Magento\Customer\Model\Visitor - PATH
        if ($this->skipRequestLogging || $this->isModuleIgnored($observer)) {
            return $this;
        if ($this->session->getVisitorData()) {

        $this->setLastVisitAt((new \DateTime())->format(\Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime::DATETIME_PHP_FORMAT));
        $this->setHttpUserAgent($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']); // setting user browser to object
        $this->setUserRemoteAddr($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']); //setting user ip to object

        if (!$this->getId()) {
            $this->_eventManager->dispatch('visitor_init', ['visitor' => $this]);
        return $this;

Now remove your cookies from browser and try to get the value like this

$this->session->getVisitorData(); // Or where you want to get the data by initializing session object and get it.

Now you will get something like this Array ( [last_visit_at] => 2017-04-06 07:35:44 [http_user_agent] => Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/57.0.2987.133 Safari/537.36 [user_remote_addr] => [session_id] => 9c2uc36v01is5mn30q890o1ih2 [visitor_id] => 22 )
