Usage statistics

Unless you opt-in during Cloud SDK installation, Cloud SDK software does not collect usage statistics. You can help Google to prioritize Cloud SDK features and improvements by permitting Cloud SDK to send command-line command usage statistics to Google.

Usage statistics contain anonymized gcloud tool and other Cloud SDK command-line tool executions. It doesn't include argument values, or any personal information.

You can change whether usage statistics are sent to Google at any time. To disable sending usage statistics, run the following command after you've installed Cloud SDK:

gcloud config set disable_usage_reporting true

To enable sending usage statistics, run the following command:

gcloud config set disable_usage_reporting false

See the gcloud tool guide for more information about gcloud config.

Usage statistics are handled in accordance with Google's privacy policy.
