Excluding your IP address from tracking

What is an IP address?

An IP address uniquely references your computer or device on the internet, much like a telephone number.

Preventing Linkly from Recording Clicks from your IP

Linkly can ignore certain IP addresses when tracking clicks.

You might want to do this to prevent your own clicks being recorded in Linkly’s traffic reports.

To do this:

  1. Login to Linkly.

  2. Click Settings, then IP Exclusion from the left-hand menu.

  3. You’ll see the IP Exclusion dialog. Enter the IP addresses you want to ignore in the box, one per line, and click Save.

    Your current IP is shown, and you can click Add to list to quickly add it.

Easily ignore IP addresses for the purposes of click tracking. Links will work as normal, but won’t result in any clicks being recorded in click tracking reports.

Things to Know about IP Address Exclusion

  • The IP address usually refers to your local internet connection, not your computer. Your phone, if not connected to WiFi, will have a different IP address.
  • Conversions won’t be recorded for any excluded IP addresses either.
  • Links will otherwise redirect as expected.
