A good alternative to stop using Google Analytics

When I shared my solo developer stack to build a SaaS some people have complained about Google Analytics due to privacy issues, and they are right.

I want to replace it and stop using it but, do you know any good free alternative?

I would totally go with Plausible. I use it, I like the automatic reports and the API to create custom reports for my users. Sure, it's not free unless you self host it, but the smallest plan is enough for 10 to 20 websites so you can share it for your whole business 👌

I think I'm going to try plausible cheapest monthly plan. I didn't want another paid service because I'm starting with monse.app, and I don't have enough pay users, but probably the best option out there right now.

I understand, I hope you like Plausible and find paying customers soon 👏
I know people working at Copilot and I think personal finance is a very cool niche, but people are really picky about how they do what they do. So there's not one app to rule them all, the world needs many different and unique apps. I hope your app succeeds as well 💪

I’ve read good things about Plausible and Goatcounter

Plausible looks good, but not free. 😞

Well, you have to pay your own server and maintain it, but ok, it could be an alternative 😄

What's the privacy problem about? I use Google Analytics, I'd like to know more.
