Image from store PII Viewer for Google Analytics
Description from store Sending personally identifiable information (PII) to Google Aanalytics is strictly prohibited, but sending a unique user ID is permitted. This extension allows you to map the user ID stored in Google Analytics to PII such as name and email address stored locally. Rather than building your own custom integration to map this data together, you can simply reference a locally stored CSV file and let this Chrome extension do the hard work. This means that you comply with the privacy policy, but get to understand your visitor data.

  • (2018-01-28) Cody Henderson: Absolutely amazing extension. Provides so much more value to our company's use of Google Analytics. Currently have it configured to be able to display a user's name, email, and company. Really easy to set up, but the only thing that caught me off guard was that it seems you have to access GA direct from the link in the PII Viewer settings in order for the bottom toolbar to appear.

  • (2015-05-19) Hrafnkell SigurĂ°sson: Very helpful extension also the youtube tutorial is very helpful in teaching you how to user google analytics better

    Good morning, Thank you for an excellent tool. I have recently moved to GA4, and found that the PII viewer doesn't work in GA4. Would this be a feature that will be available in the near future? Thank you!

  • (2020-09-14, v:0.0.14) Justice Nerenberg: Does it work retroactively?
    Thank you sir for this wonderful tool, but does it work retroactively for MailChimp data? I have been sending MailChimp campaigns with GA integration for years, but I have no custom dimensions or USER ID's defined, if I set this up can I see past MailChimp data in GA? Thank you.

    Hello, first, thanks for providing us this amazing tool. I was able to download a csv file few months ago, and now i've a new one to upload but it's not working. When i click on my file, it's closing the window and I still see the blue button "Upload a file". I'm on Windows 10 Pro. Thank you!
  • (2019-04-28, v:0.0.14) bobby hicks: downloading code
    Hi David, thanks so much for developing this extension!! I have set up the custom user id dimension and uploaded the sample csv to my google account. I am just not sure where I am supposed to copy and paste the tracking code for new dimension. Thanks!
  • (2019-04-11, v:0.0.14) Reginald Mullin: this extension isn't working due to file type error
    First, let me say thank you for creating this extension, David. It's sorely needed. Unfortunately, it's not working for me (I'm using Windows 10; Chrome Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit). I even tried it with the sample.csv file with no luck (see http://prntscr.com/naoey7). Anyway, please take a look at it when you get a chance. For the time being, I'm going to remove it.

    Hi David - we're trying to load a rather large CSV (5.3MB) and I'm seeing the following error crop up: options.js:23 ++ PII Viewer uses Google Analytics to anonymously track extension usage. Especially capturing errors. options.js:177 ++ file type: text/csv options.js:243 +++ Importing lines: 13437 options.html:1 Unchecked runtime.lastError while running storage.set: QUOTA_BYTES quota exceeded at FileReader.reader.onload (chrome-extension://kocaompbindpaanpabjeeechkofidmbh/src/options/options.js:269:42) https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33015723/unchecked-runtime-lasterror-while-running-storage-set-quota-bytes-per-item-quot Apparently there is a pretty straightforward fix in the Chrome docs: https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/storage Thanks! -nick
  • (2018-04-12, v:0.0.11) David Goujard: Not working anymore
    Used to be a very neat extension but due to a Google Analytics update in their pages I guess, it does not work anymore. Any new version in preparation ?
  • (2018-04-10, v:0.0.11) Martin Polley: Used to work, now doesn't
    Hi there, I installed and configured the extension and it worked great! But now when I try to use it, it doesn't seem to work – the user names just don't show up in GA (User Explorer view). Am I doing something wrong, or is something broken? Thanks!
  • (2018-02-20, v:0.0.11) Patrick Melo: Uncaught TypeError
    PII works perfectly for me. Thank you for creating such a wonderful tool! I tried sharing it with two of my coworkers but it doesn't seem to work for them. The names don't show up and the bar is unresponsive. I asked them to open the developer console and they receive an exception after the "++ PII Viewer for Google Analytics loaded." message. It reads as follows: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'fields' of undefined at searchForUser (indext.js:102) at HTMLTableCellElement.<anonymous> (inject.js:189) at Function.each (jquery.min.js:4) at init.each (jquery.min:4) at updateDimensionData (inject.js:176) at inject.js:288)

    I am not seeing all client ID's. There is only one. Please advise.
  • (2017-12-19, v:0.0.11) Contact Limit
    Apparently there is a contact limit of ~15k so this severely limits the capabilities of this extension. Please fix
