Introduction

Back to Top

Ubiquiti’s goal is to improve products intelligently, by tracking and prioritizing the most common errors and analyzing device usage scenarios. Issue Reporting enables the team to fix issues quickly and improve product design by having a better understanding of real customers’ use cases. With that in mind, the data shared with the developer team is limited to information and configuration which doesn’t have personal character. That is why all IP addresses, MAC addresses, SSIDs and any unnecessary information is omitted from the reported data. No sensitive configuration files nor memory content that could contain private data is disclosed during the crash report. Please see an example of a real set of reported data in the section below.

Reporting of the stability issues is always disabled by default. When enabled, it can be turned off at any time in the Device Reporting section of the System Settings.

Sample Data Export

The crash report example below is from a real case and is shown unencrypted to reveal the data that is being sent. Please note that in reality, all this data is sent encrypted.
