Mouseflow now offers IP address anonymization

by lasseschou in Features on October 3, 2011

Recently, we decided to give you the option of logging IP addresses anonymously. Technically it means that Mouseflow removes the last octet in the visitor’s IP address before storing it. In this way, Mouseflow conforms with requirements in countries like Germany, where you are not allowed to save the entire IP address of a visitor to your website. This feature is available for all of our users, and it’s up to you whether to enable this feature or not.

By default Mouseflow stores the IP address of your visitors. Enabling IP anonymization is simple:

  • Sign in to your account
  • Click “Edit” in the website list
  • Click “Edit details”
  • Tick the checkbox “Anonymize user IPs”
