May cause DB connect errors until disabled
By , for WP 4.5

Right after installing this plugin WordPress would be unable to connect to the DB every few hours. I would get the message below with WP-debug and have to restart the server in order to fix it. My server has tons of free memory, 1gb php memory limit, disk space, cpu, etc... I used it with Wordfence, w3 total cache, woocommerce, and a few other plugins. These errors stopped only after I disabled the plugin. It's now been a couple of days and no errors after the plugin disabled. None of my wp-include php files are modified either. It was a great plugin though while it worked.

Update: I just read in the support forums that it doesn't work with cache plugins. So I guess that if I were to disable w3 total cache it would work again. I'll probably try disabling the "database cache" in w3 total cache and see if that works.

Does not display visitors country! Useless
By ,

I have the correct maxmind Geo IP file installed, but the plugin always doesn't display the visitor's country! Useless... I have to test the IP's one by one in order to know where are my visitors! I used this plugin before on other WP sites and worked fine. But now will have to find another solution.

incorrect results of visit and visitor
By , for WP 4.4

Results of visit and visitor are different when I compare with analytics statistic . This plugin show that I have some more visit and visitors.

Completely Inaccurate
By ,

Nothing about the stats are accurate. One day it went from saying I had 10-15 visitors to 500 visitors and over 1000 visits and it has consistently been this way for a couple days. This is great except when I check that against my hits on posts and pages it doesn't add up. My site has also been really slow since this has happened. I've deleted the app and it's file from control panel. Good luck to anyone else with this. It started off seemingly accurate but lately it's been ridiculous.

Hm

Results of visit are different when I compare with jetpack statistic plugin. This plug show that I have 10x more visitors.

Added porn links to my database
By ,

If you want to use wp statistics plugin then make sure to check your database after some time, because they are adding porn links to your database and i have experienced that.

I was using the wp statistics plugin for several sites but after checking my database i found out some links to porn websites i tried to check all plugins and after some time i deleted the wp statistics plugin including its tables from my phpmyadmin and once again i checked my database and the links to porn websites were deleted.

Becareful once you deactivate and delete this plugin all the tables will be still available in your database so make sure you also remove those tables too which belongs to wp statistics.

That was what i experienced from using the wp statistics plugin and my websites were not ranking in google because of these bullshit porn links added by wp statistics plugin so be careful with it.

Slowed my site down to a crawl including wp-admin and had to remove via FTP
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have this plugin on 7 of my sites. One day, one of my sites slowed down to a crawl. I checked the pages that didn't depend on WordPress and they were working fine. So it seemed like a WP issue. I then tried to log in to the Admin panel but kept getting the "Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded" error message and it was too slow to even bring up the interface to uninstall or update plugins.

So I had to manually log in to my Webhost and disable the plugins 1 by 1 until I found the culprit: WP Statistics.

Now, I've learned my lesson and uninstalled all 7 copies of this plugin and never looking back again!

Consumes too much memory
By , for WP 4.3.1

The plugin works nice until last version. I installed it a few days ago and
