@jkb @sohkamyung Can you point me to where it states that telemetry and studies are opt-in? In my experience, they are enabled by default and you have to opt-out. There are some opt-in studies but the feature itself afaik is opt-out. Happy to be proven wrong if something has changed or if I missed something.
