IP Address Block

It would be GREAT if there was an option to block your own IP address, that way of your own employees go to your website, it won’t affect the “views” every widget gets.

It would be great if we could exclude our internal company views/site visits by submitting our IP addresses, similar to how it works in Google Analytics and Hotjar.

As an additional option, it would be good to have something like e.g. testkey’s or tokens that we can use when connecting to Elfsight with the widgets. This will save the views when the widget’s are just getting tested

Sounds smart, thank you for sharing @Irene!

Just in case I’d love to mention that views do not get counted for you as an account owner, so could you please elaborate on possible scenarios when such a testkey could be used?

Many thanks for your help!

This is a must, especially for lower tier plans. Give the people a chance to not expire themselves, lol.

Hey there @Dan_Krulikoski :wave:

Thank you for sharing your feedback! We see how useful this option might be for our users, so we’ll try our best to consider it for the widget in future updates. I’ll keep you posted here :slightly_smiling_face:

As for the “chance to not expire themselves” you mean prevent counting your own views, am I right?

In this case, I am glad to tell you that you can do this. To do that, you need to make sure you’re logged in to your Elfsight account on the same device and browser that you use to work with your website.
