IP-Adress Include -Filter does not work anymore on several accounts

As I was investigating if the IP filter of some views do work I set up a View with an IP-Filter which is only including my own IP which is IP4 only.


I also tried to exclude IP adresses from several other networks I was working from.


I set up the following Filters (non of them worked):


predefined Filter option:


custom option I: ^87\.140\.13\.29$

custom option II: ^87\.140\.*

custom option III: 87\.140\.*

custom option IV: 87\.140\.0.*


Each account I am working with has the anonymize IP activated.

And Google Analytics is implemented by Google Tag Manager.


When I did record my Session with Google Tag Debugger no hits has been collected for my IP filtered View. when I was changing the location with the change location feature to: 'Use my externally visible IP' The debugger was not abled to identify the IP I was coming from (tested with several networks as well).


Does anybody have the same Problem or knows how to solve?

Hi Sarah,

if I understand rightly, you would like to exclude your IPs ans you activated the anonymize IP function?

If you have anonymize IP activated, the last octet will be changed to "0". You could try to exclude "" als a filter (instead of ""). But please notice: You probably might filter out other visitors with IPs which are almost equal to your IP adress (e.g. "" or ""), because all of them will be changed to "".

Bye. Nils.
