About Piwik

Piwik is the leading open-source analytics platform.

As such, it is an alternative to Google Analytics. Since it is open-source, it can be self-hosted and thus offers better data protection and privacy.


Piwik does not show live reports, but updates its reports from time to time. seems to generate reports only once an hour. The exception to this is the dashboard, where you have a "Visitors in Real-time" widget that will show live tracking actions.
Piwik analytics is always for a specific date (range). Unfortunately, the default is the current day only. Choose a different date (range) in the top controls bar, between header and content.
