Discussion on: Are Ad Blockers blocking Google Analytics?

Short answer is yes. Longer is It depends which one they are using and how cranked up they have the settings and a host of other factors. I have mine set to block GA.

Why are these analytics so important that you are willing to try and violate the privacy of your users? That’s pretty unethical and actually punishable under the CCPA. I suggest taking a look at this law and it’s connection with GA bc it may also help answer some questions about the disparity.

Hi Andrew, thank you for the feedback.

Not really interested to do anything that violates privacy laws. I asked this question because I was curious to know what actually happened with the GA tracking.
