Hi @Narendhiran v,

 

You can create a GA view filter to filter this traffic from your view but unfortunately it is not possible to delete the historical data. What you can do is creating a segment that excludes the spam traffic while you are doing your analysis.

 

I hope this helps.

Regards

Hi Narendhiran,

You need to be setup new Google Analytics VIEW Filter and exclude fake traffic over there. The most common reason for a sudden increase in direct traffic in Google Analytics is bots, so let's analyze what is a bot, how to identify it and most importantly how to exclude it from your reports.
