Filter out own data

Hello,

 

What is the best way to filter out my data in GA? I have seen that one way is to exclude your IP address within the filters but this doesn't make sense for most of the people because my IP changes regularly, it's a dynamic one. What other are possibilities are there? I have found a useful application, called Google Analytics Opt-Out, but this works only on PC, what else do you have for tablet?

Here some other suggestions, but I can't find the best one: http://www.daniloaz.com/en/5-ways-to-exclude-your-own-visits-from-google-analytics/

MAC filtering would be the best if it would exist!

Just for your information:

- I want to exclude some users of the company who are spread out in different countries

+1 to option two in the link that @santosh provided - this gives the advantage of being able to both include and exclude staff, as well as having some oversight on how many staff have actually excluded themselves (which you would not get with simply instructing staff to use an opt-out service). If there is a staff intranet, which only staff can access, then you could use this as an opportunity to add an additional custom dimension to their GA cookie.
