Statistics Collection


DBeaver collects usage statistics to enhance the user experience and improve the application's features. This article explains the purpose behind the data collection, the type of data collected, and how it aligns with privacy policies.

What data is shared

The data shared includes:

  • Anonymized information about the operating system and locale. A locale is a set of parameters that defines user-specific settings such as language, country, and formatting preferences for dates, times, and numbers.
  • A list of actions performed in the user interface to analyze workflow efficiency, such as opening an editor, executing a query, using the data view panel, etc. These insights help us understand how users interact with DBeaver features.
  • Types of databases utilized to focus on popular database support.

DBeaver does not collect:

  • Personal information.
  • Sensitive details such as database connection configurations, executed queries, or database information.

How is the data sent

The data is transmitted securely at the application's shutdown or during startup. To ensure transparency, you may review the collected data types in the DBeaver source code, available at DBeaver's GitHub repository.

User Control

You have the authority to manage your data sharing preferences. To modify these settings:

  1. Navigate to Window -> Preferences -> General -> Usage Statistics.
  2. Use the checkbox to enable or disable the sending of usage statistics.
  3. Click on Apply to save your preferences.

Note: While you can opt out of data sharing, participating in the statistics collection helps us enhance DBeaver's features and user experience. We value your contribution to our continuous improvement and encourage you to join this collective effort. All data is collected using the DBeaver Corporation Privacy Policy.
