Ignore visitors based on IP address or Unique ID (tracking cookie)

To create new IP or Unique ID (UID) filters, go to your site preferences, then Visitor tags & filters sub-tab, as shown below.
From here you can click the "IP / UID" link to manage existing filters and create new ones.

You can also create a filter directly from a visitor detail page. Just click the "tag" link next to their IP address or UID. Because the Unique ID is a cookie, we recommend tagging those instead of IP addresses, as the tags will still work even if their IP address changes.

This is the form you will see when creating a filter. Give the visitor a meaningful name, e.g. "Cousin Billy", and check the "Do not log visits" box. Note, this is not retroactive, meaning it will not remove this person's previous visits from your stats. It will only apply to future visits.
