Logged-in admins are blocked by default in Burst Statistics. If you need more control or want to block the entire office, home or spammers, you can block IP addresses by leveraging a filter. And this is how you do it:

List the appropriate IP addresses

Create a .txt file with an IPV4 and/or IPV6 address on every line. We recommend using whatismyipaddress.com and using both IPV4 and IPV6. Please note some users have dynamic IP addresses that cannot be blocked entirely, as IPs will change and blocking IP ranges can prevent ‘real visitors’ from showing up in your data.

Important: The file should be named: burst-ip-blocklist.txt

Create an MU plugin that leverages the above list

In the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ folder you can add both the above .txt file, and a .PHP file with the needed filter.
