Since 2.1.8, Analytify added the full support for “Cookie Notice for GDPR”. Analytify will not track the user until he/she accept the cookie. To add this feature add the below code in your theme functions.php file.


/**
* Add GA code if cookie is accepted.
*
*/
function analytify_cookies_notice_compatibility( $ga_code ) {
// if cookie notice installed and cookie not accepted. Don't add tracking code.
if ( function_exists('cn_cookies_accepted') && ! cn_cookies_accepted() ) {
return '';
}
return $ga_code;
}
add_filter( 'analytify_ga_script', 'analytify_cookies_notice_compatibility' );

GDPR

You may have already heard about GDPR, as I was also getting tons of emails from the online services I use on the web that they are updating their Privacy Policy.

On 25th of May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will come into force. European Union GDPR is the most important change regarding data privacy ever happen in the history of the internet.

Many Internet services have been scrambling to get in compliance with the new standards — and Google is no exception.  As Analtify is famous Google Analytics plugin for WordPress we did some dramatic changes in our plugin to make your site GDPR compliance.

We have added features in Analytify that makes it GDPR Compliance for our EU customers. Following are the features that can make this happen.

 

Anonymous IP

 

Under the GDPR, an IP address is considered to PII (Personally Identifiable Information). Even Google Analytics never show IP address in reporting but Google Analytics does use it for the Geolocation data.

To make your site full GDPR compatible. We recommend to turn on the Anonymize IP settings from Analytify.

 

Steps to turn on Anonymous IP

 

  1. Login to your WordPress Admin Panel.
  2. Go to Analytify Settings -> Advanced Tab.
  3. Check the “Anonymize IP addresses” settings
