Filter by country not working

I created the following filter:

Type: Custom - Include

Pattern: United States|Canada

Views: All Mobile and Web


Yet, when I go back to the Home page and I see the stats, I'm seeing hits from other countries other than US and Canada. I waited 24 hs and the hits are still there.

Hi :-)
Filters wont remove data from data that is already in the reports. It can also take 24-48hrs for changes to start showing an affect in reports.
The default date range does not include the current day. If you added the filter the day before yesterday, then make sure to change the date range at the upper right to only include for example today (if there is current days data processed and available in the reports)
