Privacy concerns abated for Google Analytics bug on exit pages

Alex Moss discovered a bug with Google Analytics within the "Landing Pages" > "Exit Pages" reports will result in calling (not the expected data but) a random website. A Google spokesperson confirmed that what Alex Moss discovered was, in fact, a bug. The company however is convinced that there is no privacy concern with the bug and that the website that is shown is entirely random.

Google said: We are aware of a potential issue where some users who click to open pages in their Content Reports via the icon in Google Analytics are seeing random domains rather than the website being tracked in their account. No private information is being shared during this process. Our team is working hard to fix it.

The bug was fixed the same day.
