We ask you to opt-in to send us regular usage telemetry during the installation process. Even if you don't, we understand and appreciate your security requirements. Read on to understand more.
Data collected is strictly anonymous in nature and cannot be used to uniquely identify a user.

What data is collected?

Appsmith Server

The Appsmith server sends a keep-alive ping every 6 hours to indicate that it is still running without any errors.
Appsmith is a lightweight proxy and does not capture any data returned by your APIs, databases, or third-party tools.
