Matomo, the open-source, self-hosted, and ethical analytics solution, can be extended via an extensive plugin library. Adding plugins is simple and allows additional analytics features to be added to your Matomo installation. The creators of Matomo, Innocraft, have created a number plugins. Some are paid (premium) and some are free.
A number of free plugins exist within Matomo's marketplace. Some allow bot traffic to be logged and reported and other free plugins allow alerts to be configured and sent when specific conditions or thesholds are met.
Matomo offers a full suite of well-supported premium add-ons that are developed and maintained by the core development team at Innocraft. Plugins range from Custom Reports to Attribution Model Comparison tools, and even include extentions that build heatmap reports and allow A/B testing within the platform. The plugins developed by Matomo/Innocraft are undoubtedly safe and secure. Third-party developed plugins are likely safe as well, though it is advised to complete some due diligence when researching the developer and maintenance cadence.
