    Hi,

    I have a google analytics account that gives me 1,000,000 users to the last month (example)

    But if I check this data by the device (mobile/desktop/tablet) I see there 1,300,000 users (all the devices combine) for the same period.
    What creates this difference?
    why I have 300,000 more users when segment be device?

    Thank you for the help!

    Because they might concoct users with different devices on same IP? For instance.

    Possible Google analytics have removed duplicate users who got different IP but they were the same user. Many a times users ips change as they are not static. Google filter the users from the available data they have.
