Lottie causing site traffic to go through the roof

I’ve added Lottie to one of our sites and ever since adding it our bandwidth usage has skyrocketed. We host with WPEngine and before Lottie we had around 30-40k visits but now are being charged for over usage at 150k+.

Is there something wrong with how we are loading Lottie in or is WPEngine doing something wrong?

They has said it’s valid traffic, but it just doesn’t seem right to have to pay so much more for an animation on a page, or does it?

Hi, What’s the file size of the your Lottie animation (default.json)?
Good check with WPEngine if hotlinking is allowed for your files.

I think it’s less than 90kb.

I have a ticket open with WPEngine now. I’ll report back what they say.
