To enable GA4 debugView follow these steps.

Step 1. Open incognito mode in your browser and visit your website from an address with added ?ga4_debug=on, e.g. https://example.com?ga4_debug=on

Step 2. Go to your GA admin panel and open debugView

Step 3. Browse a little and see your traffic in the debugView

How to disable debugView?

If you visited your website from the incognito mode, then you don’t need to disable it. Just close your browser.

If you visited your website from your standard browser mode, then visit your site again from an address with ?ga4_debug=off added to the end of it.

Why is your traffic not showing in the debugView?

Google Analytics 4 and its debugView are still in active development and are far from perfect. Please give it time or visit your page later.
