Audacity is collecting IP address ? It looks like that
Data Collection - Data we collect is very limited.
IP address - which is pseudonymised and irretrievable after 24 hours.
Basic System Info - OS version and CPU type.
Error Report Data (Optional) - Sent manually by users as part of an Error Report.
Some of the data collection, including IP address (?) is not even optional. People believe that Audacity will collect your IP address.
Selling Data & Sharing - We do not and will not sell ANY data we collect or share it with 3rd parties. Full stop.
Additional Data - We do not collect any additional data beyond the points listed above for any purpose.
A lot of people are not happy and there are talks about forks, some of them sharing through the above discussion itself.
