i have been searching for a way to ensure that the IP from which the piwik tracking UI interface is accessed is excluded from the statistics. e.g. i am the only person accessing the tracking UI and i move around the planet with my laptop, thus changing IPs regularly. i do not want my own visits to the site to be included in the stats, so an option to somehow stop the stats including my own visits would be helpful.
in thinking about how this could be done, i am aware that really there is a need for an identifier to be created on my pc, to exclude only my visits, most likely a cookie.
aha, thanks, i did not see that hyperlink previously as i have a laptop screen and it was rendered underneath vertical height of the screen.
(under the ‘save’ button). so yes, that feature is what is was looking for.
