Fathom Analytics


A simple plugin to add the Fathom Analytics tracking snippet to your WordPress site. If you are using Fathom Pro, you can also display a tab that holds the Fathom dashboard, making it easier to see everything in one place.

What is Fathom?

Fathom Analytics is cutting edge software that tracks users on a website (without collecting personal data) and gives you a non-nerdy breakdown of your top content and top referrers. It does so with user-centric rights and privacy, and without selling, sharing or giving away the data you collect. You can see browsers, countries and devices, and you can also track goals (e.g. form submissions, external link clicks and more).


  • The beautiful Fathom Pro dashboard
  • The settings field on the general settings page.


  1. In your WordPress admin panel, go to Plugins > New Plugin, search for Fathom Analytics and click «Install now«
  2. Alternatively, download the plugin and upload the contents of fathom-analytics.zip to your plugins directory, which usually is /wp-content/plugins/.
  3. Activate the plugin


Where can I find the plugin settings?

This plugin has just a single settings field, which can be found by going to WP Admin > Settings > General.

Can I use this plugin if I’m using Fathom Lite?

If you’re using Fathom Lite, you should use version 2.0.4 of this plugin, as 3.0.0 onwards introduces breaking functionality.

Unfortunately the devs have decided to break support with the open source version of the application, and now the only way to use this plugin is to manually download the older version of the plugin and install it (they couldn't even be bothered to publish a separate version for the open source users).

I'm a big fan of Fathom and their mission. Not only is Fathom focused on privacy but the stats they provide are actually useful, and you don't need to have a doctorate in statistics to be able to make use of them! 🙂 Plus - they are GDPR compatible so there's no need to have a cookie/ privacy banner because of your analytics solution (you may still need one for other things you do).

The plugin makes it easy to add the Fathom tracking code, block the tracking of Administrators, and add the Fathom tracking URL (including for custom domains). This is the best privacy-aware analytics service I've ever used. The dashboard makes it simple to view stats for all of my WordPress sites. I highly recommend it.

I have been Google Analytics user but to be honest I do not spend much time going through all the data they provide. Fathom is simple, fast and GDPR compliant. It shows just the right amount of data. I have already started using it for 2 websites and could not have been happier. And this plugin makes adding your Fathom Analytics code to your website a breeze.

3.0.3 – June 14, 2021

Fixed a bug with custom domains on an older version of PHP

3.0.2 – January 27, 2021

Set the default to track admins, as some users might miss this when installing Fathom for the first time. We also tested the plugin on WordPress 5.6 and it’s working great.

3.0.1 – January 27, 2021

Set the default to track admins, as some users might miss this when installing Fathom for the first time. We also tested the plugin on WordPress 5.6 and it’s working great.

3.0.1 – December 7, 2020

We’ve had users running into problems when using WP Rocket minification. We spoke to their support team and they advised us on how to exclude the Fathom script from minification. Huge thanks to Jon Henshaw (@henshaw) for initially raising this.

3.0.0 – May 12, 2020

This update includes breaking changes, so please read this message.
1) If you have any manual goals added, you should change them to follow our new guide (see here). Added new tracking code.
2) You can now exclude your own traffic even when you’re logged out, we’ve added big improvements for custom domains and things are much faster.
3) If you use Fathom Lite, stick to 2.0.4, as you have everything you need

2.0.4 – May 9, 2020

Switched it around. A lot of WordPress sites use goals so we can’t use the new API yet, that’ll have to come in a major number

2.0.3 – May 9, 2020

We have released brand new tracking code for custom domain users, removed the old fallback and things will now load much faster.

2.0.2 – April 15, 2020

Small fix with version control

2.0.1 – April 15, 2020

What a time to be alive. We have officially added custom domains to Fathom to help with those pesky ad-blockers. And we moved the snippet to the footer (where it escaped from).

2.0.0 – November 15, 2019

Well first of all, we are sorry for the long delay in updating this plugin! We’ve been busy at work on Fathom V2 all year. In this major update of the wordpress plugin, we’ve ensured backward compatability but have modified the guidelines to include some of the new changes we have made. Firstly, the concept of a «Dashboard URL» doesn’t exist within V2, and you simply use the CDN URL! Nice and easy. But we have left the Dashboard URL in place for our V1 users who self-host. We’ve also added the ability for V2 users to embed their dashboard & create a new tab in the admin menu.

1.0.1 – October 10, 2018

Added support for tracking multiple sites in a single Fathom dashboard (requires Fathom v1.0.1).

1.0.0 – September 10, 2018

Plugin release.
