Assigning Names to Client IDs in User Explorer

I have recently created a website on weebly that I have linked to google analytics. I would like to keep track of visits to my website, but I also need to be able to visit the website after I update it to see if it works. This sends data to google analytics that I do not want. Is it possible to assign names to certain client ID's to keep track of my own visits.

Hi Mikey
The best way to do this is on an IP basis using a filter. You can find out how to do it here:

Alternatively, if your hostname is static, you can use that. You can find more info about filters here:
