How does the disableCookies affects the Visit measurement?


We recently added:
as part of the tracking code.

How does this affect the ability to track Visits in Matomo.
We have also anonymized the last 2 parts of the ip-adress.

Hi! Thanks. I’ve read that documentation but I don’t see visits in that document as one of the reports that would be affected.

We saw a huge drop in visits. So I was wondering if the documentation you referenced also assumed that the IP would NOT be anonymized.

I don’t understand how Matomo otherwise would be able to tell my users apart, if they only have user agent info to look at.
