In the world of data ownership, privacy and general data protection regulation (GDPR), Umami is the most popular alternative to Google Analytics with over 4.6 million downloads from Github. Umami provides both a free self-hosted version as well as a cloud hosting solution that is faster, friendlier, and more cost-effective than alternative solutions. Umami is able to track detailed website activity such as session duration, pages per session and source of traffic without using cookies or collecting any personally identifiable information.

“Umami was founded with the belief that all users should own their analytics data,” said Mike Cao, founder and CEO of Umami. “We want users to have access to quality analytics without the need to rely on and entrust their data with giant tech companies like Google. Our customers are those who want to measure the success of their product or website while respecting the privacy of their users.”

Founded by three brothers, Mike, Brian and Francis Cao, Umamiwas born from Mike’s frustration with using Google Analytics, which dominates the industry despite significant privacy concerns. Umami has grown into a very popular open-source project with more than 11,000 stars and 4.6 million downloads on Github.

“By year-end 2024, Gartner predicts that 75% of the world’s population will have personal data covered under modern privacy regulations. Using privacy-violating products such as Google Analytics will be a liability for enterprises and Umami is the only alternative to make sure all organizations are GDPR compliant,” said Alfred Chuang, partner at Race Capital. “We are thrilled to support Mike, Brian and Francis in their journey.”
