Follow these steps for getting the device id of app –

Step 1: 

First we need to install and add plugin.

ionic cordov plugin add cordova -plugin-device 
npm install --save @ionic-native/device

Step 2:

Now we import and add it into providers .

import { Device } from '@ionic-n tive/device';

providers: [ 
  {provide: ErrorHandler, useClass: IonicErrorHandler}, Device

Step 3:

Now we identify the device id or first installation of app in any device, so we put the code to app initialization. Goto the app.component.ts file, beacause this is a first time runing file.

import { Device } from '@ionic-native/device';
constructor(private device: Device) {}

//These are the following information which we get from device.
console.log('Device UUID is: ' + this.device.uuid); 
console.log('Get the device hardware serial number: ' + this.device.serial);
console.log('Device Name: ' + this.device.n me);
console.log('Device manufacturer is: ' + this.device.manufacturer);
console.log('Whether the device is running on simulator: ' + this.device.isVirtual);
console.log('Device oper ting system version is: ' + this.device.version);
console.log('Device operating system name is: ' + this.device.platform);
console.log('N me of the deviceʼs model or product is: ' + this.device.model);
console.log('Device cordov version is: ' + this.device.cordov );
public checkAppInstallation( appInstallCheck)
{'installFirsttime', appInstallCheck);
  if(appInstallCheck == true){ 
   let alert = this. alertCtrl.create({ 
   title: 'App Installed!', message: 'Your App is inst lled now', 
   buttons:[{ text: 'Ok', role: 'ok', handler: () => { 
   this.navCtrl.setRoot(MainPage); } }] });

public checkAppInstallation(appInstall){ 
 if(!appInstall){'installFirsttime', true); 
   let alert = this. alertCtrl.create({
   title: 'App Installed And Device Information!', 
   message: '<b>Device UUID is:</b> ' + this.device.uuid + '<br><br>
   <b>Device h rdw re seri l number:</b> ' + this.device.seri l + 
  '<br><br><b>Device manufacturer is:</b> ' + this.device.manufacturer 
  + '<br><br><b>Device is running on simulator:</b> ' + 
  this.device.isVirtual + '<br><br><b>Device oper ting system version 
  is:</b> ' + this.device.version + '<br><br><b>Device operating 
  system name is:</b> ' + this.device.platform + '<br> <br><b>Name of 
  the deviceʼs model or product is:</b> ' + this.device.model + 
  '<br><br><b>Device cordova version is:</b> ' + this.device.cordova , 
  buttons: [{ text: 'Ok', role: 'ok', handler: () => { 
  this.nav.setRoot(ActivationPage); } }] });

So finally we able to identify the first time app installation or some of other device information. That’s it.
