Hi Santosh,

Thanks for your reply. I don`t have big knowledge can you advice how I can idenitify that direct access ? Should I look in access_log ? or somewhere else ?

Any chance how to remove them from google analitics ? I added filter to exclude Ashburn city but for today I can see all the visits are still in the statistics hmm

I did it in that way :

Admin- Filters -> on View section I choose filter - > Create filter and choose Predefined filter -> I choose City and provided Ashburn

But I still can see those entries in my google analytics for today, any idea ?
