Google Analytics and cookies

Dear Gliders,

does Google Analytics in Glide require cookies? Or does it work cookie-less?

If Google Analytics anonymizes IP addresses, cookie consent might not be required, according to this article.

If it uses cookies, it might add a new dimension to GDPR compliance.

I dived into details and want to share my experience:

As it turned out, google analytics sets a cookie named after the tracking-ID.

Which means that cookie consent is required for google analytics.

However the newest version of google analytics (GA4) can be implemented cookie-less (1).

Have you already tried to go cookie-less in GA?
It is the future as it makes annoying consent pop-ups obsolete.
