GitLab has been working on a process to intentionally limit our own ability to identify individual users from Service Usage Data in order to protect user privacy even better. Earlier this year, we solicited input on plans to de-identify GitLab’s Service Usage Data. We are now ready to move forward with a new system to de-identify SaaS usage data before it enters GitLab’s internal analytics environment.
With user privacy in mind, we are building a pseudonymization process to run against our SaaS service usage data. We’re planning to roll out these changes in October 2021.
You can read more about what is changing, what isn’t changing, and the timeline and implementation on the GitLab blog.
