Before you start

  • Users who have Edit Permission at the account level can:

    • Create/edit filters at the account level

    • Create/edit filters at the view level

    • Apply filters to any view in the account

  • Users who have Edit Permission at the view level can:

    • Apply existing filters to or remove them from that view, but cannot create new filters or edit existing filters

  • It is highly recommended that you have Edit permission at the account level because you will need to create a new filter for the IP address(es).

  5. Enter a name for the filter.

  6. Select Predefined to select from the predefined filter types.

  7. For IP Address click exclude > traffic from the IP address > that are equal to and fill in the textbox with your IP Address. We have an article to help you find your IP Address.
