How do I know what data Autotrack is collecting, and what if I’m not comfortable with the data being collected? Can I turn off collection of specific data?

Autotrack collects all clicks, form submits, and pageviews on your site. It does not collect inputted data in sensitive fields such as password or hidden fields.

If you find Mixpanel falsely identifies an input as sensitive, you can override it by adding the class “mp-include” to the form field. Autotrack will then start tracking that field input.

Disable Autotrack for certain fields

If you’d like to disable Autotrack for certain field inputs or on certain elements, you can do so by adding classmp-no-track or mp-sensitive :

  • mp-no-track : Prevents an event from being fired when a user interacts with that element or its descendants.

  • mp-sensitive: Prevents form inputs from being tracked as a property. Mixpanel will still fire events on inputs that have mp-sensitive, but they will not include the form input as a property value.

Disable Autotrack entirely

You can always disable Autotrack entirely by opting out. Click your name in the upper righthand corner of your Mixpanel project and select Settings from the dropdown:


Note that only the project owner can disable Autotrack on a project.
