Telemetry data

Overview

The term telemetry refers to the collection of certain usage data to help improve the quality of a piece of software. Lost Pixel uses telemetry in one and single scenario:
  • collecting usage data of the action
This page describes the overall telemetry approach for Lost Pixel, what kind of data is collected and how to opt-out of data collection.

Why does Lost Pixel collect metrics?

Telemetry helps us better understand how many users are using our product, how often they are using our product and which mode is the most popular among usages. Our telemetry implementation is intentionally limited in scope:
  • We use telemetry to answer one question: how many monthly active developers are using lost-pixel

When is data collected?

Data is collected whenever Lost Pixel engine is ran.
