There are a few ways to tell Piwik to exclude and ignore your traffic:

  • Set the ‘ignore cookie’: Login in Piwik, click in the Username in top menu, then in the ‘Settings’ page click the link below the section ‘Exclude your visits using a cookie’. (a piwik_ignore cookie without expiry date is created on the domain of your Piwik server).
  • You may also ignore all traffic from a given IP address or IP address range (useful if you use a static IP address): check this faq.
  • You may also exclude all traffic where the requests have particular User Agents.
  • You may also include a Tracking Opt-out feature in your website, and use it to exclude your traffic. (a piwik_ignore cookie without expiry date is created on the domain of your Piwik server).

Note: when you exclude some traffic, it will only exclude it going forward and is not applied retroactively.
