As of March 16th, 2022, Google announced that the mainstream version of Google Analytics labeled “Universal Analytics” will be deprecated in July 2023, with Google Analytics (360) enterprise depreciating in October 2023, presenting Google Analytics 4 (GA4) as the future of the platform.

With the introduction of Google Analytics 4 (GA4), Google has released collection and configuration limits that apply to the new property. These limits are only relevant to this property and are on a per-property basis.
Keep in mind that GA4 will not log events and event parameters that exceed the Google Analytics limits.
Are you still using a Universal Property?
If you are still using the Universal Analytics property, either through Google Analytics or Google Analytics 360, and haven’t updated to GA4, then you can find the Universal Analytics limits and quotas here.
(We recommend creating a GA4 property alongside your existing Universal property to gain access to some of the new features available in GA4).
What are your Collection Limits?
|Logged Item||GA4 Limit||Can the item be deleted if you’re close to the limit?|
|Distinctly named events||500 per app instance
(Automatically collected events and events collected via enhanced measurements do not count)
