So looks like the Epic Launcher is starting to collect data from other game launchers, engines and even web profiles, basically making it fall in the category of spyware
Here are my sources:
The launcher is collecting all the information from Steam profiles, and even Unity Developers, on top of that, this spy agents make a huge impact in the system performance
I don’t want Epic to invade my privacy and i want to Opt-Out of this data collection, and why they are even collecting this with what purpose?
Epic has a big data leak like a year and a half ago and now they are just collecting whatever data can find? Excepting that this won’t happen again?
I understand the idea of collecting Engine performance, along side with playtime in some cases, even on games made with the Engine that aren’t in the Epic Store, but entire Firefox profiles? Steam Groups? Unity performance? is just a no go, I love the UE4 Engine, but I don’t want to be spy on, I want an explanation
