  • (2023-06-14) Matthew Gregory: Trying to filter developer traffic in GA4. Have the data filter setup in GA4 correctly but not sure how to enable debug mode. Supposedly this should do it, but don't think it's working. Didn't have high expectations since this was updated back in 2019.
  • (2023-04-05) John Egan: Seems to work, even though Google hasn't touched it in 3.5 years. And, I was not able to find any documentation on how to properly use this or interpret the results. Google is one of the wealthiest companies on the planet, yet they can't find their way to hire a small team to maintain and document this tool? Typical Google Greed.
  • (2023-03-11) Eduardo Mota: It used to work perfectly with the previous version but now, with GA4 doesn't work anymore.
  • (2022-12-16) Adrianne Gosselin: As of today this is the extension Google recommends we use to Debug GA4 events. Works great!
  • (2022-08-24) TJ Claridge: Sadly I can't use this because we apparently have 5,000 "Debug devices" with similar names. Until they fix this... it is useless and we can't validate any tracking. How did they miss this?
  • (2022-07-15) Vladyslav Rakhmanin (Владислав Рахманин): Перестало сегодня работать
  • (2022-06-24) Radley Sustaire: Nothing happens, nothing in console. Icon says ON. No settings? Not sure what its even supposed to do. All the preview screenshots are super blurry.
  • (2022-05-27) Robot Yang: not working, dont know why.
  • (2022-03-31) Yannik Ehrhardt: This just saved us hours of more troubleshooting, thank you!
  • (2021-09-27) Duc Nguyen: My trackingId is G-XXXXXXXXXX , I get this in browser console "The tracking Id should only be of the format UA-NNNNNN-N." I think this plugin should be updated with the new trackingId format
  • (2021-02-02) Casey Hani: very terrible it was debugged couldn't code the s word so it was very terrible

  • (2019-10-09) Ana Kravitz: I use this every day!
  • (2019-07-28) Jonah Snider: Helped me find out what was wrong with my site, but didn't provide built-in resources to help fix it.
  • (2019-07-02) Jamie Evawin: It's a really nice way of browsing GA hits. So much cleaner than the official GA plugin. However, it's not maintained (most recent commit 2 years ago) and it doesn't actually pick up every hit. I've noticed sometimes I'll click something, the plugin won't show it, but I'll see the event in the network inspector and in GA so I know it fired. It's a shame because this plugin is really nicely designed but without knowing it's picking up every hit, it's almost useless.
  • (2019-02-06) Awesome stuff. Couldn't do my job without it. Or I could, but would not want to.
  • (2018-10-08) Ferran Buireu: Funciona muy bien. Estéticamente no es gran cosa pero funciona muy bien y reconoce el trackeo.

  • (2017-09-18) not working
  • (2017-08-25) Filip Larsson: It loads analytics_debug.js instead of analytics.js on any website you visit (and when you have turned the GA Debug to ON). Which means that you can analyze how Google Analytics is implemented without having access to the code on the server. I have used it for many years and it has saved me tons of time. If you are a developer or somehow working with Google Analytics, this plugin is a must for you! But remember to to turn it OFF when you don't need it, since it slows down the loading of the websites you visit (not much, so you won't probably notice it...) I can see from recent reviews that some had trouble to get it to work. Try restarting the browser and turn GA Debug ON and OFF a couple of times and it will work.
  • (2017-08-17) rhundolf reyes: i think it' great
  • (2017-08-08) Rajan Raj: Doesn't work
  • (2017-07-17) Richard Barraclough: Doesn't work.
  • (2017-05-29) Lucas Bustamante: It does what it promises. It just lacks some options to show less info, like "Show events only" or something like that, to help debugging events...

  • (2023-04-19, v:2.8) Roy Wetherbee: GA4 vs. GA3 (Universal Analytics)
    First of all, I want to say that this is one of my all-time favorite extensions, and I've never had an issue with it until now. I have a client with both GA4 and UA/GA3 installed on their website (they have GA360 and so can and will continue to use UA/GA3 through June 2024). I am trying to confirm some event tracking for UA/GA3, but in the console GADebug is only reporting activity for the GA4 account (nothing for UA/GA3, though I can see the event data in the UA/GA3 UI a few hours later). Is there a mode/toggle/setting I can change in order for GADebug to report what is being sent to my UA/GGA3 account?

  • (2020-11-13, v:2.8) Jon Burns: Custom events/params not showing in DebugView - problem with GA Debugger v2.8?
    I've leveraged the chrome extension GA Debugger v2.0 to test new events/param instrumentation in our web app - previously I was able to load my web app, turn on the GA Debugger for that page, and then see newly instrumented events/param tracking show up in the DebugView in GA. But now it only appears to be showing the "out of box" page_view and engagement events, but none of my custom events... Is there an issue with GA Debugger 2.8? One other observation - when I turn on GA Debugger I see a "No debugger found... Could not connect to the Tag Assistant window" modal pop up in the lower right of the screen. Is this related to the issues I'm seeing?

The events are definitely being sent and we have seen the data in our GA account, so we are confidently that everything is working our end, it's just the debugger...not being able to debug. This only occurs on our pre-prod and prod environments, using the debugger on our dev environment works as expected. Help?

  • (2018-11-21, v:2.7) can Extension always on when page is redirected in new page ?
    Right now we are able to track analytics only after we start recording network calls. Say suppose In a web page there is a link which on click will open the link in a new tab where the extension recording is not ON and i will not be able to record analytics calls. Is there a way i can switch ON the recording all the time no matter how much ever tabs i open ? I am expecting once the browser is active/opened, the extension should automatically start recording in respective tabs. If this feature is not there, can you please take it as an improvement/suggestion and make this feature available ?

  • (2018-10-03, v:2.7) Cristobal Dabed: Filter by TrackingId
    Is it possible to add a filter for the extension to only show requests for a given trackingId, we have several systems in our house. That have different trackingId ids, and when we debug via the debugger it can become a bit cumbersome to look over all the tracking id that gets in the console output. Or is there a repository url for the extension, and ev. try to add a PR to the existing extension? Thanks in advance.
