Matomo by default tracks the anonymized IP address, but you can also configure Matomo to track the full IP address if you wish.

To view your visitor IP addresses:

  • In the User Interface, click Visitors > Visits Log. The Visits Log will display a list of all the visits during the selected calendar period, and for each visitor will display the IP address in the left.
  • you can also fetch the visit IP addresses of a given visitor, or all visitors in a selected date range, using the Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik Analytics) Live! API.
  • you may also see the Visitor IP on the Visitor Profile report.
  • the raw data is also available in the database, in tables matomo_log_* See this FAQ.
  • you can add the Visitor IP address to Custom Reports and get for example, the list of pages by IP addresses, or any other breakdown report by Visitor IP.

Note: in all cases, the IP address will only be displayed if you are logged in Matomo: for privacy reasons, IP addresses are never displayed to the anonymous user.
