Can see data before I've installed the code into my site

Hi!

I've just installed GTM into my site but haven't created any tag.

Someway I can see several sessions in my GA account.

How could it be explained?

 

Morever, the developer even hasn't known UAID, so there is no chance he has installed GA code into the site.

Hi,

You're receiving fake hits. It's called referral spam or ghost spam. Please check this great article about it:

Thank you, that helped.
I haven't had idea, that spam-bots send hits to any possible GA IDs, even they are not implemented.
