Spam data is appearing in analytics reporting and for some reason all the properties that are under the analytics account have no UA code available on the websites,

the same spam data is appearing for every property and there is no tracking code on any of the websites under various properties. The codes were earlier on all the websites and the account was also tracking all the right data and there was no spam data under reporting.

Hi @Rohit P,

 

This type of spam only needs a created tracking code, the spam is sent directly to the Analytics property even if it is not inserted on a site. Here is more information about it.

Hope it helps,
