Which visitors are affected by the origin limit update?

With the introduction of Chrome 85, Google implemented a new privacy rule. This update prevents Wisepops from detecting the full URL that your visitors came from.

This update concerns only Chrome users at the moment (reminder: Chrome has a large market share of the browser market).

How does this update affect you as a Wisepops user?

When you use the following option in the “Audience” tab, we can’t detect the full URL that your visitors came from anymore--only the domain, scheme and port.

Let’s say one of your visitors using Chrome was browsing the following URL: https://cool-blog.com/awesome-brands.

In Wisepops, it’s no longer possible to target Chrome users who came from this specific URL.

Instead, you can now only target visitors coming from the https://cool-blog.com domain.

Any questions? Feel free to contact us.
