Blocking Requests

Here are some situations where you might want to block some requests:

  • Blocking ads and other third-party content (so the test focuses on just your website)
  • Blocking analytics
  • Blocking large images that are expected to change regularly and would cause unwanted alerts

You can also block ads and trackers.

Note: while this will make your analysis results more consistent, blocking requests also means that the experience is less like that of a real user.
