Unity Analytics incident report

23 March 2020

Overview

It has come to our attention that Unity Analytics has been enabled for Pop Pixie since the launch of the demo in March 2019.

We responded immediately to this by releasing a build of Pop Pixie (v1.0.2) that disables Unity Analytics. We recommend that everyone updates to this version to prevent any further data being sent to Unity's servers.

All collected data has been deleted using the data reset feature of Unity Analytics.
