Now you don't have to worry about URL with http or https, www or without, UTM params.

  • Want to display social proof on the home page, regardless of the traffic source? No problem.

  • Want to track your checkout form, even when the URL has tons of parameters? No problem.

This is the new default setting for any new social proof notification created.

Still want to use the old system since you have many unique URLs? Flip it ON, careful though, we've learned the hard way it's not easy to anticipate all possibilities.
