Privacy Statement

Playnite itself doesn't store any user information and you generally don't need to provide any information to import installed games. All game library data is stored locally on your PC.

Account connection process depends on how a library plugin is implemented, but is usually done via official login web forms and only the web session cookies or tokens are stored, the same way when you login to those services via the web browser.


Playnite can be extended with plugins (written in .NET languages), PowerShell scripts and user interface themes.

See the extensions portal for more information about how to make these addons.


We use Crowdin to manage localization, please join our project if you want to submit translations:

Proofreading changes to original English strings can be submitted by creating pull request for LocSource.xaml file.

Code Contributions

Code contributions (pull requests) are currently not being accepted while majority of code base is being rewritten for Playnite 11.

Please wait with any pull requests after P11 is at least in beta state.

Please ask in the related issue first before starting implementing something to make sure that nobody else is already working on it. If an issue doesn't exist for your feature/bug fix, create one first.

Regarding code styling, there are only a few major rules:

  • private fields and properties should use camelCase (without underscore)
  • all methods (private and public) should use PascalCase
  • use spaces instead of tabs with 4 spaces width
  • add empty line between code block end } and additional expression
  • always encapsulate the code body after if, for, foreach, while etc. with curly braces:
if (true)


instead of

if (true)


  • master - default branch representing state of currently released build.
  • devel - development branch containing latest changes. All pull requests should be made against devel branch.
  • devel* - development branches for specific features/versions.


You can see the planned versions with their features in the milestones overview.


See the wiki for info about building and setting up the development environment.
