    google script

    I have my google analytics script, which is javascript. People can see my google id by viewing source, probably even if I put it in an external js file.

    Is my google analytics id considred sensitive information? Is it worth going through some lenghts to hide it via php or something similar?

    Hi

    No it doesn't contain anything personal. Anything that could interfere with your identity problems, it would have been analyzed by google and they would have fixed the problem in question. I don't think you have anything to worry about. No matter what, anything client-side in relation to code CAN be seen by users no matter what. If they want to see the source of your code there is nothing you can do about it. It's in the public domain.

    Cheers.
