Site registering two different Pixel IDs

9 0 1


I have installed my Facebook pixel via Shopify's Preferences page.

When I check with Pixel Helper, I see that two different IDs are being used, the one I have installed and another one???? Is this normal? Is an App adding an additional Pixel ID? A Trojan? A hacker? Every ID registers view content and pageviews correctly.

Please let me know what you think.

Hey, Bob!

Savannah here from the Shopify Guru Team. 🙂 

Hmm, that pixel could be popping up for a variety of reasons. Would you mind if I ask a couple of questions to narrow it down? 

* Did you insert a tracking code into your theme's HTML/CSS (or additional checkout scripts), or did you just add one pixel by navigating to Online Store>Preferences?

* What's your store's URL? 

* Do you have any Facebook or pixel apps installed (you can check by navigating to the Apps section of your admin on the lefthand menu). 

* Which Facebook pixel helper are you using? There is a known error with the Chrome FB pixel helper itself giving false error messages about multiple pixels, and typically it's nothing to worry about. 

Thanks so much for the additional information!
