How to Turn Off Data Collection in Mozilla VPN

Hey there,

When first opening the MozillaVPN app (in Linux) it gave me to option to consent or decline to data collection of technical information. I consented but would like to decline/turn it off. I know how to do this for the Firefox browser, through the settings and privacy tab; however, I'm having trouble finding a way to turn off / opt-out for MozillaVPN.

Thanks!

(I'm asking this question in this Firefox forum because I was unable to make a new post in the MozillaVPN forum.)

You can turn off data collection from your Mozilla VPN by following these steps:

1. Access the settings by clicking on the gear icon in the top right part of the VPN. 2. Click in "Privacy & Security" 3. Uncheck the "Data collection and use" box.

I tried logging out of all accounts, uninstalling Mozilla VPN, deleting Firefox cookies, and uninstalling Firefox-- then reinstalling everything-- But MozillaVPN still starts up without the data-collection consent screen.
