i often see that a recurring person is tracked as a new person. also if the person uses the same IP, ... this visits could be collected and summed up together only by giving the user an anonymous ID and set a cookie with the same ID. this is a math game if you have same browser, IP, cookie, settings it could be the same person also if one parameter is changed.
Hi @Tobias-Conrad Could you paste a screenshot of the Visitor Log showing the same user tracked as a new visitor?
solution: before anonymized IP give the person a fixed ID would help.
i attached a screenshot please search for IP 91.21.76. IP occurs 7 times, gattered in two userprofiles 3 + 4 visits
A) i had to add only the tracking pixel on one site(digistore24.com). so for this visits it creates a new visitor ID. 3 visits ID d86820ea0249372e (only tracking pixel), 2x ID 485ea9dd526ac612
B) other IP in log and user details, see attachements
solution: before anonymized IP give the person a fixed ID would help. because we save only the visitor ID there will be no harm of any law. (i read about it) this solution brings also a better location from the full IP, before it will be SAVED anonymized.
Sorry but I don't quite understand the issue - could you maybe try again describe what is the issue? maybe you could list "Steps to reproduce" and behavior that you see VS behavior you expected?
I'll close it for now, maybe open a new issue with the steps to reproduce, or re-open this one if it's better
