leancloud_visitors:
enable: true
app_id: <<your app id>>
app_key: <<your app key>>
# Dependencies: https://github.com/theme-next/hexo-leancloud-counter-security
security: true
betterPerformance: false

Explaination for betterPerformance: Because the Leancloud developer’s plan has limits in requst thread amount and running time, counter number may be very slow to load in some times. If set betterPerformance to true, counter number will be displayed quickly by assuming the request is accepted normally.
You should build the Leancloud background first to make the counter active.
After that, install this plugin and config it to make the counter safe.
