Exit intent technology on mobile devices
The exit-intent technology works differently on mobile devices than on a desktop. There is no mouse movement to track, so advanced exit intent popup software will show a popup once a visitor tries to click "back" or close the mobile browser tab.
Mobile exit intent technology allows engaging with customers of the online shops and websites on mobile devices. Considering that most of the customers visit sites via mobile devices, this is a great solution for the website owners to promote their sales. According to Statista's statistics results, in 2018, 52.2 percent of all website traffic worldwide was generated through mobile phones, up from 50.3 percent in the previous year. Mobile currently accounts for half of all global web pages served.
