Can Google Analytics filter me out based on IP address used to login

Hi,

 

My IP address changes almost every time I turn my computer on, which happens once a day. I currently have as a routine to first google "what is my ip address", then copy the resulting address, then open the GA filter I have set to filter out my IP address, then pasting that new address there, then saving. 

 

Is there any way I can have this done automatically by making GA detect and update my IP address every time I visit (or login to) GA?

 

If not, why not? Smiley Frustrated 

 

Best,

CB

Hi @Claudio B

 

There is another trusted option you can try. There is an extension for web browsers called "Ghostery"

 

All you need to do is install the extension and it will not allow GA to track anything.

 

You can download the extension from the following links:

 

Google Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ghostery/mlomiejdfkolichcflejclcbmpeaniij?hl=en

 

Mozilla Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ghostery/

 

Here is detailed article about excluding dyamic ip in Google Analytics using Ghostery:

Hope this helps
