Sitecore 9 no experience profile data

After spinning up a new Sitecore instance and browsing the site under several anonymous sessions I noticed that no data was appearing inside experience profiles.

Sitecore 9 no experience profile data
This occurs because by default xConnect will not index and display anonymous contacts. Sitecore documentation has a great article on a setting change which will allow this data to be index. Then after a rebuild of the xDB search index in SOLR, the data will begin to show.

The setting which gets changes is IndexAnonymousContactData which is located inside the sc.Xdb.Collection.IndexerSettings.xml file inside the xConnect website folder (C:\inetpub\wwwroot\sc9test_.xconnect\App_data\jobs\continuous\IndexWorker\App_data\Config\Sitecore\SearchIndexer in my case).
