Anonymize data

On this page, you can customize Matomo to make it privacy compliant with existing legislations, by: anonymizing the visitor IP, automatically remove old visitor logs from the database, and anonymize previously tracked raw users' data. See also our official guide: Web Analytics Privacy

You are about to enable raw data deletion. If old raw data is removed, and reports haven't already been created, you will not be able to see historical past analytics data. Are you sure you want to do this?

You are about to enable report data deletion. If old reports are removed, you will have to re-process them in order view them. Are you sure you want to do this?

You are about to enable both raw data deletion & report data deletion. This will permanently remove your ability to view old analytics data. Are you sure you want to do this?

You have changed the data deletion settings. Please save them before starting a purge.

You are about to permanently delete data from your database. Are you sure you want to continue?

You can configure Matomo to regularly delete old raw data and/or aggregated reports to keep your database small or to meet privacy regulations such as GDPR.

If you delete old reports, they may be re-processed again from your RAW data when you request them.

If you have also enabled "Regularly delete old raw data from the database", then the reports data you're deleting will be permanently lost.
