Interactive visual player

VWO’s interactive player offers a host of features that let you go through visitor behavior at your own pace.

Click Icon

Mouse trails and clicks

VWO records actual mouse movements as visitors move across pages on your website. You can also see where they clicked (both left and right clicks) and how often they moved up and down on a page.

Speedometer Icon

Adjustable speed

Perform fast-forward to see how hundreds of people sign up or go slow and focus on every mouse movement and click.

Pause Icon

Skip pauses

Skip the time frame during which visitors didn’t perform any action.

Observation Icon

Add observations

See a visitor confused filling up one of your forms? Add an observation right at the stage where the visitor got confused, and VWO will save it with the same time-stamp.

Mine actual behavior for insights

VWO lets you filter recordings on a wide set of parameters to look for insights from a unique set of visitors.

Visitors Icon

Visitor segments

Filter your recordings by creating your own advanced custom segments using complex and/or bracketing logic conditions or choose from VWO’s 20 predefined segments including:

  • New vs. returning visitors
  • Mobile, desktop, and tablet traffic
  • Browser
  • Query parameter

Visitors Profile Icon

Visitor profile

Don't watch individual sessions, look at journies instead

Historically, analyzing session recordings meant looking at individual sessions. Since 1 conversion is scattered across multiple sessions, optimizers should look at the collective journey, instead. With VWO Visitor Profiles, teams can analyze cumulative journies across segments of choice (converters from USA on iOS, non-converters from UK and many others)

Shovel Icon

Dig deeper

Want to see recordings of visitors who dropped off at the last step of the funnel? VWO lets you filter recordings of visitors who:

  • Converted for a goal
  • Didn’t convert for a goal
  • Dropped off at a step in the funnel
  • Became part of an A/B test
Tagging Icon

Custom tagging

Use your unique criteria to filter a certain set of recordings. For example, see recordings of visitors who came from an Adwords campaign and added a particular product to cart. VWO captures this data with the help of custom tags defined by you.

Filter Icon

Advanced filters

Filter your recordings by the number of pages visited and see what’s making people leave your website. You can also see recordings of visitors who:

  • Dropped off a page
  • Visited a page
  • Visited a certain number of pages
  • Entered/exited a page
  • Stayed on the page for a certain time

Be performance-driven

VWO takes utmost care of your data security and also ensures that recording behavior doesn’t impact the experience of your website.

Data security

By default, VWO anonymizes key presses such that no confidential data of your customers is saved with us. You can also choose to exclude sensitive pages from VWO tracking.


VWO ensures that while recording behavioral data of your visitors, we don’t slow down your website or impact the visitor experience in any manner.

Deliver great experiences. Grow faster, starting today.
