    The information is very interesting, but is likely to be removed by moderators.

    If that report is correct then the so called anonymous usage report data is far from it in Bitdefender and they are misrepresenting what the program collects by calling it that.


    I think I will turn it off from now on as that reported behaviour seems very intrusive.


    The fact that system username, product version and license key are transmitted kind of negates any claim to be anonymous.


    I hope that turning it off really does turn it off...
