Privacy

An overview of Warp's approach to privacy.

Our Philosophy

If you have any questions about any of this, please don’t hesitate to reach out at privacy@warp.dev.

Our philosophy is complete transparency and control of any data leaving your machine. This means you can:

Telemetry and crash reporting are used to improve the product and to debug any issues that may arise. Terminal sessions contain sensitive information, and we want the absolute minimum sent to our servers necessary to provide you with the best possible experience.

Telemetry data never includes console input or output and usage of this data will never be part of our business model.

You can view our full privacy policy here as well as how Warp handles security here.

How to disable telemetry and crash reporting

Opt-out during signup

  1. Navigate to Privacy Settings

  2. Toggle off analytics, crash reports, or both (if it's blue, it's "on")

Opt-out after signup

  1. Navigate to Settings > Privacy, or open the Command Palette and search for "privacy"

  2. Toggle off analytics, crash reports, or both (if it's blue, it's "on")

Delete your data

Warp provides a convenient way for deleting your data:

  • From Warp, go to Settings > Privacy > "Visit the data management page"

    • Click the "Delete" button on the Data Management page to go through the data deletion flow.

  • From the Data Management page, log in to your Warp account, and click the "Delete" button to go through the data deletion flow.

Deletion jobs run every 24 hours, so if you deleted your account and want to signup again with the same email, you won't be able to until that deletion completes.

If you're a Team admin, the deletion flow will require that you assign a team member as the new admin.

What telemetry data does Warp collect and why?

Warp collects high-level usage data (never console input or output) to discover product quality issues and guide feature prioritization. Selling usage data will never be part of Warp's business model. It is used solely to improve the end-user experience.

We use Sentry for crash reporting and Segment for telemetry.
