IP Anonymization (or IP masking) in Google Analytics

The IP anonymization feature in Analytics sets the last octet of IPv4 user IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses to zeros in memory shortly after being sent to Google Analytics. The full IP address is never written to disk in this case. Geographic dimensions are later derived from anonymized IP addresses. The IP anonymization/masking takes place as soon as data is received by Google Analytics, before any storage or processing takes place.
