Tracking policy

All data is anonymous and cleaned of PII before being sent to PostHog.

What we track

  • Whether you accept or reject suggestions (never including the code or the prompt)
  • The name of the model and command used
  • The number of tokens generated
  • The name of your OS and IDE
  • Pageviews

How to opt out

The ~/.continue directory contains a config.json file that looks like this:

You can turn off anonymous telemetry by changing the value of allowAnonymousTelemetry to false. Alternatively, you can uncheck the "Continue: Telemetry Enabled" box in VS Code settings.
