Security Features that were introduced in Matomo v5


what security features besides “Matomo v5 secure token” were introduced as part of Matomo v5 ?

The releasenotes are a bit blank, saying “We’ve enhanced security for more robust data protection. Your data security is our priority.”


Hi @moonriseart
I read:

From Matomo 5 it is possible to create tokens that can only be used in a secure way (via POST requests) and will not be valid when used as a URL parameter for a GET request. It is recommended to create ‘Secure only’ tokens to improve security.
