Usage statistics

PicoScope lets you share optional usage statistics with Pico to help us improve our software. Usage statistics help us prioritize features and device support. These usage statistics are anonymized and do not contain any personally identifiable information. Usage statistics include the following:

  • How often different features are used and which preferences are changed.
  • How often different buttons and menu items are clicked.
  • How long the PicoScope application remains open.

How to disable ‘Send usage statistics’

If you prefer that PicoScope does not send usage statistics, follow these steps to disable this feature:

  • Select Tools > Preferences
  • In the resulting window, click the Updates tab.
  • Uncheck the Help improve PicoScope by submitting anonymous usage statistics checkbox.
  • Click OK.

If you do not see a Help improve PicoScope by submitting anonymous usage statistics checkbox, the version of PicoScope that you have installed does not collect usage statistics.
