"In order to understand the usage across the Plex ecosystem and how we need to improve, Plex will continue to collect usage statistics, such as device type, duration, bit rate, media format, resolution, and media type (music, photos, videos, etc.). We will no longer allow the option to opt out of this statistics collection."
This is **** bullshit. You are not entitled to that information. You may want it, but you do not get to make the decision for me. Stop making the world a worse place. The privacy of your users comes before your desire for metrics. It doesn't matter if you don't think the information is sensitive, the user is the one to decide.
It's super-duper bullshit that the change is forced upon lifetime Plex Pass customers.
Stop being shitheads. Listen to your users. Changes like this should be discussed prior to implementation.
