Filtering Application Data

To help you find the cause of an issue, AppSignal gathers relevant error and performance measurement data by default. In some instances, your AppSignal integration may be collecting too much or too little app-specific data.

⚠️ Your application should not collect user-identifiable information (such as personal names, email addresses, passwords, etc.). Use the tools described in this guide to limit and filter out this data.

You can configure AppSignal what kind of data it should not collect by filtering parameters, headers and session data. This is what we will be looking at in the next steps of this guide.
