Usage Statistics

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

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

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

gcloud config set disable_usage_reporting true

In order to enable sending usage statistics, run the following command:

gcloud config set disable_usage_reporting false

See the gcloud command-line tool guide for more information about gcloud config.

Usage statistics are handled in accordance with our privacy policy.
