This app sets all specified properties on ingested events to
null, effectively preventing PostHog from collecting information you do not want it to use.
It is used by teams such as WittyWorks to protect user privacy by removing unneeded geographic data.
The Property Filter app requires either PostHog Cloud, or a self-hosted PostHog instance running version 1.30.0 or later.
Not running 1.30.0? Find out how to update your self-hosted PostHog deployment!
- Log in to your PostHog instance
- Click 'Apps' on the left-hand tool bar
- Search for 'Property Filter' press 'Install'
- Configure the by app by following the onscreen instructions.
It's important to note that this app effectively removes information from PostHog events by setting properties to
null. Apps on PostHog run in sequence, so it usually makes sense to place this app at the end of a sequence.
Note: If you are filtering
event.ip will also be set to null.
Does this filter properties for retrospective events?
No. The Property Filter app will only work on events ingested after it was enabled.
