    Cookies set by the Hotjar script 

    Name

    Description

    Duration

    Data type

    _hjSessionUser{site_id}

    Hotjar cookie that is set when a user first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID.

    365 days

    JSON

    _hjSession{site_id}

    A cookie that holds the current session data. This ensues that subsequent requests within the session window will be attributed to the same Hotjar session.

    30 minutes

    JSON

    _hjClosedSurveyInvites

    Hotjar cookie that is set once a user interacts with an External Link Survey invitation modal. It is used to ensure that the same invite does not reappear if it has already been shown.

    365 days

    Boolean true/false

    _hjDonePolls

    Hotjar cookie that is set once a user completes a survey using the On-site Survey widget. It is used to ensure that the same survey does not reappear if it has already been filled in.

    365 days

    Boolean true/false

    _hjMinimizedPolls

    Hotjar cookie that is set once a user minimizes an On-site Survey widget. It is used to ensure that the widget stays minimized when the user navigates through your site.

    365 days

    Boolean true/false

    _hjShownFeedbackMessage

    Hotjar cookie that is set when a user minimizes or completes Incoming Feedback. This is done so that the Incoming Feedback will load as minimized immediately if the user navigates to another page where it is set to show.

    365 days

    Boolean true/false

    _hjSessionTooLarge

    Causes Hotjar to stop collecting data if a session becomes too large. This is determined automatically by a signal from the WebSocket server if the session size exceeds the limit.

    Session

    Boolean true/false

    _hjSessionRejected

    If present, this cookie will be set to '1' for the duration of a user's session, if Hotjar rejected the session from connecting to our WebSocket due to server overload. This cookie is only applied in extremely rare situations to prevent severe performance issues.

    Session

    Boolean true/false

    _hjSessionResumed

    A cookie that is set when a session/recording is reconnected to Hotjar servers after a break in connection.

    Session

    Boolean true/false

    _hjid

    Hotjar cookie that is set when the customer first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID.

    365 days

    UUID

    _hjRecordingLastActivity

    This should be found in Session storage (as opposed to cookies). This gets updated when a user recording starts and when data is sent through the WebSocket (the user performs an action that Hotjar records).

    Session

    Numerical Value (Timestamp)

    _hjTLDTest

    When the Hotjar script executes we try to determine the most generic cookie path we should use, instead of the page hostname. This is done so that cookies can be shared across subdomains (where applicable). To determine this, we try to store the _hjTLDTest cookie for different URL substring alternatives until it fails. After this check, the cookie is removed.

    Session

    Boolean true/false

    _hjUserAttributesHash

    User Attributes sent through the Hotjar Identify API are cached for the duration of the session in order to know when an attribute has changed and needs to be updated.

    Session

    Hash

    _hjCachedUserAttributes

    This cookie stores User Attributes which are sent through the Hotjar Identify API, whenever the user is not in the sample. Collected attributes will only be saved to Hotjar servers if the user interacts with a Hotjar Feedback tool, but the cookie will be used regardless of whether a Feedback tool is present.

    Session

    JSON

    _hjLocalStorageTest

    This cookie is used to check if the Hotjar Tracking Script can use local storage. If it can, a value of 1 is set in this cookie. The data stored in_hjLocalStorageTest has no expiration time, but it is deleted almost immediately after it is created.

    Under 100ms

    Boolean true/false

    _hjIncludedInPageviewSample

    This cookie is set to let Hotjar know whether that user is included in the data sampling defined by your site's pageview limit.

    30 minutes

    Boolean true/false

    _hjIncludedInSessionSample

    This cookie is set to let Hotjar know whether that user is included in the data sampling defined by your site's daily session limit.

    30 minutes

    Boolean true/false

    _hjAbsoluteSessionInProgress

    This cookie is used to detect the first pageview session of a user. This is a True/False flag set by the cookie.

    30 Minutes

    Boolean true/false

    _hjFirstSeen

    This is set to identify a new user’s first session. It stores a true/false value, indicating whether this was the first time Hotjar saw this user. It is used by Recording filters to identify new user sessions.

    Session

    Boolean true/false

    _hjViewportId

    This stores information about the user viewport such as size and dimensions.

    Session

    UUID

    _hjRecordingEnabled

    This is added when a Recording starts and is read when the recording module is initialized to see if the user is already in a recording in a particular session.

    Session

    Boolean true/false
