After you make any changes you must click on Save Settings on the top-right corner to save the changes. There are three options here, let’s look at each of them individually:
Filter IP Numbers:
This option allows you to filter an IP address or multiple IP addresses from gathering analytics data. This can be especially helpful to prevent data from being created during testing. For example, if you filter your own IP address then the analytics will not consider your views in the total views which means you are getting a more accurate reading.
Note: Valid values are singular IP addresses or IP ranges (i.e. 10.0.0.1 – 10.0.0.2)
Enabling this will anonymize the IP addresses for all your video viewers. Cincopa will still record video analytics and detailed heat maps but we just won’t record the full IP addresses for each viewer. This means you will not the IP address of the viewer.
To enable this all you have to do is check on the checkbox Activate
This option allows you to block embedding your media files in a specific domain. For example: If you block xyz.com from access your media files then the admin from xyz.com will not be able to embed your Cincopa media files.
By default, your media can be embedded on all websites. You may globally restrict which domains your media can be embedded on.
To Enabled it, simply click on the radio button enable and then enter the domain name. Also, below that you can enter the message to be displayed when the gallery is locked, leave empty to keep the default message.
In this section, you will be able to edit some important details of your account like First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Current Password.
