Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is an analytics tool for website owners to understand user behavior, make data-driven decisions and improve performance. It also has enhanced privacy controls to ensure compliance with regulations and protect user data.
Google is transitioning from Universal Analytics to Google Analytics 4 with a deadline of July 2023.
How to set up GA4
Convert an existing Google Analytics property to Google Analytics 4
- Sign in to your Google Analytics account and select the property you want to convert.
- Go to the Admin section of the property, then click on the “GA4 Setup Assistant” card under the “Property” column.
