How To Delete Telemetry Data On Mozilla Firefox browser

If you’ve read technical news for a while, you may know what started with the California Consumer Protection Act last Wednesday. With the entry into force of the CCPA, several technical giants announced their plans to introduce changes.

Mozilla also announced that users could delete all telemetry data collected so far. This is done to comply with the new California Consumer Protection Act. Mozilla recently received a new update and users can now delete the data.

What is the telemetry data?

Well, it’s data that contains different information, e.g. These include, for example, the number of websites you visit each day, the browsing time, the add-ons installed, the number of tabs you open, etc.
The telemetry data also includes the operating system you are using, the hardware specifications of your computer, the browser version, the language and much more. After Mozilla has given the freedom to delete this data, it makes sense to delete this data.
