I use the Google Analytics Plugin.
https://marketplace.coronalabs.com/plugin/google-analytics

Unfortunately I don't know how to anonymize the IP address. On a Google tutorial page, I only find information about how to customize the Javascript code of a website.
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en

How can I make these adjustments in the Corona plugin to comply with my country's privacy policy?

With GDPR coming, we are also interested in this.

Corona, can you please expose this setting in your Google Analytics plugin, in time for GDPR? 

 

Thanks

Following, we need this as well or will have to remove Analytics from our apps.

Just use the REST API and then you control the data sent to GA.  Sure it is more work for you but being in control is worth it.

On another note, how do you create analytics on GA for a new mobile app? In my account dashboard, you can only create a new property for a website. If you select mobile app, Google directs you to Firebase.

Hi Rob,

 

Any feedback from the Corona team on how to anonymize IP with the GA plugin?

We've been rather busy. This looks like it may have slipped through the cracks. I've re-asked.

Hmmm.. I don't see how that solution (submitting ipa=1) works with the plugin

 

-Doesn't that just apply to using Google Analytics through the REST API?

Hey there, guys!

Updated plugin version is public. Take a look at new init parameter anonymizeIp @ https://docs.coronalabs.com/plugin/googleAnalytics/init.html#anonymizeip-optional

Make sure that you're using a Corona Sim at least of version 3326 to get Google SDK and new API update.
