Collection and Transmission of Anonymized Feature Usage Count and Anonymized Crash Event Information
When you use Typing Hero, there are two types of anonymized information collected from your device, i.e. feature usage count tracking, and crash event tracking.
All anonymized information is collected using Google’s Firebase service. Collection, transmission, and storage is managed by Google’s Firebase libraries.
Anonymized feature usage count is collected as you use the app’s functionality.
- When typed Keyword is replaced with its matching Text
- When text expansion is undone by pressing backspace or delete
- When Macro is performed
Anonymized crash event information is collected when crash occurred.
Anonymized feature usage count is collected to help developer prioritizing development work. Seeing high usage for text expansion feature also boost my motivation.
Anonymized feature usage count information is used by developer to make decision on which features to improve. Features used often will get more attention to ensure stability and quality received by user. Features used less could trigger investigation to find out the reason why, or simply considered to be removed completely.
Anonymized crash event information is used by developer to look at the cause of error, make a test case to reproduce it, write changes to fix the issue, and publish an updated version to Google Play. All of this is possible without user and/or developer intervention.
Steps to disable anonymized feature usage count and crash event collection.
- Open Typing Hero
- Go to Settings
- Disable Share app usage
- Share crash report
- Force Close (or Force Stop) Typing Hero
- Enable Typing Hero Service
