Sage Simply Accounting Now Collects "Anonymous Information" By Default. How-To Opt Out

The following screen came up after updating a bunch of Simply Accounting systems:


Product Enhancement Program

Sage Simply Accounting has enrolled you in the Product Enhancement Program to help improve our software and services.

Got to like the fact that most folks may or may not pay attention to the above in a busy office or accounting firm. :(

We make sure to Opt-Out by default letting our client's users know that they can opt back in if they so desire.

Under Help click on the About Product Enhancement Program and then tick the I no longer want to participate option. Click OK to complete the process.



We prefer that vendors have OPT-IN by default not opt-out when it comes to monitoring telemetry from systems and/or software.
