Retrieving device IMEI

Are there any common methods currently being used by Journey customers/developers to automatically capture IMEI information on an android or iOS device?

Part of the process on one of our applications the IMEI number from a device is added to a custom field on the user model which is then pushed to downstream activity records performed by a device, for auditing purposes. This is a manual process and as such, this field is not always populated and maintained by admin personnel like it should be.

The IMEI number is considered Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and requires explicit consent and a predefined purpose to collect it automatically. Because of this, the JourneyApps platform does not expose the IMEI number.
