Telemetry is an optional feature of Firefox OS that measures non-personal information such as memory consumption, app performance, and feature usage. It sends this data to Mozilla on a daily basis, and helps us to identify bugs and improve performance. {note}For more information about what kind of data is collected and how it's used, see our [http://mozilla.org/telemetry privacy policy].{/note} =How do I turn Telemetry On or Off?= {for not fxos1.3} # Tap [[Template:fossettingsapp]] to open the Settings application. # Tap the {button Improve B2G OS} button and the settings window will appear. # Tap the {button Submit performance data} button to turn Telemetry on or off. <br><br> [[Image:Telemetry Firefox OS]] <br><br> {note}[[Image:activate icon]] represents that Telemetry is enabled. {/note} {/for} {for fxos1.3} # Open the Settings app [[Template:fossettingsapp]]. # Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and tap {menu Improve Firefox OS}. # Tap the box next to {button Submit performance data} to turn Telemetry on or off (a check mark means it's on.) {/for}
''Submit data'' is a Firefox OS feature that allows Mozilla to collect certain non-personal information such as application usage (active use time, counts of opens/closes/crashes and a list of uninstalled apps on Firefox OS devices) and search engine provider information (which search engine provided search results to the device). Firefox OS records this data on a daily basis and sends the data to Mozilla bi-weekly. This data helps us to improve search and performance, identify bugs, understand app usage and create better content offerings on Marketplace. More specifically, app usage data collected through the ''Submit data'' feature will inform Firefox OS and Firefox Marketplace so that we may deliver: *apps or web content more relevant to your app usage or app usage common in your region through improved content discovery features (such as new collections or featured apps); *an improved search experience influenced by your app usage and use by region; *an enhanced user experience of commonly used apps by prioritizing feature improvements and new developments based on the “Submit data” data; *new content not seen by users before; and *opportunities to influence the direction of Firefox OS or Firefox Marketplace based on end users’ usage of the phone with beta, A/B testing or prototyping activities. Search engine provider information, collected through the ''Submit data'' feature, will inform Firefox OS so that we may deliver an improved search experience based upon usage trends, such as default search options sensitive to regions and geographies. {note}For more information about what kind of data is collected and how it's used, see our [http://mozilla.org/telemetry privacy policy].{/note} = How do I turn ''Submit Data'' On or Off? = {for not fxos1.3} # Tap [[Template:fossettingsapp]] to open the Settings application. # Tap the {button Improve B2G OS} button and the settings window will appear. # Tap the {button Submit performance data} button to turn Telemetry on or off. ;[[Image:Telemetry Firefox OS]] {note}[[Image:activate icon]] represents that Telemetry is enabled.{/note} {/for} {for fxos1.3} # Open the Settings app [[Template:fossettingsapp]]. # Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and tap {menu Improve Firefox OS}. # Tap the box next to {for not fxos2.1}{button Submit performance data}{/for}{for fxos2.1}{menu Submit data}{/for} to turn Telemetry on or off (a check mark means it's on.) {/for}
