🦔 Telemetry

Overview

Continue collects and reports anonymous usage information. This data is essential to understanding how we should improve the library. You can opt out of it at any time. We use Posthog, an open source platform for product analytics, to collect and store the data. You can review the code here.

What we track

We track

  • the steps that are run and their parameters
  • whether you accept or reject suggestions (not the code itself)
  • the traceback when an error occurs
  • the name of your OS
  • the name of the default model you configured

All data is anonymous and cleaned of PII before being sent to PostHog.

How to opt out

The ~/.continue directory contains a config.json file that looks like this:

~/.continue/config.json
{
"allow_anonymous_telemetry": true,
...
}

You can turn off anonymous telemetry by changing the value of allow_anonymous_telemetry to false.
