I installed Google Analytics Dashboard for WP (plugin version 4.9.5, WordPress version 4.7.1–he_IL). After the activation our site’s bounce rate in Google Analytics fell to zero. I tried to deactivate plugin, and the bounce rate jumped back to 68%:
Bounce rate fell
Is it bug or some wrong setting?

It’s because the tracking code gets inserted multiple times. You need to uninstall the old analytics plugin or to remove the old tracking code, for details see:

Thank you for the quick answer. I’ll check the code again for manually added tracking codes.
