[UA→GA4] How to check whether you have Universal Analytics or Google Analytics 4 (GA4)

Check whether your property type is Universal Analytics or Google Analytics 4 (GA4)

If you're looking at a Universal Analytics property, you'll see a colored notification at the top about data processing. If you haven't already set up a GA4 property, you'll also see a button to complete GA4 setup.

You can also look at your property ID to see whether you are using Universal Analytics or Google Analytics 4.

  • Universal Analytics property IDs start with UA and end with a number (UA-XXXXXXXXX-1).
  • Google Analytics 4 property IDs have only numbers (XXXXXXXXX).

Property selector

  • If you created your property before October 14, 2020, it is probably a Universal Analytics property.
  • If you created your property after October 14, 2020, it is probably a Google Analytics 4 property.

Find your property ID

To find your property ID:

  1. In the top left corner (next to the Analytics logo), click the down arrow to open the property selector.

    The left-most column lists your accounts, and the next column contains your properties. The property you currently have open is highlighted in gray.
     
  2. Look at the number below the property name to identify the property type.
