Query Monitor does not persistently store any of the data that it collects. It does not send data to any third party, nor does it include any third party resources.

Query Monitor implements an optional browser cookie that allows users to view Query Monitor output when not logged in, or when logged in as another user who cannot usually view Query Monitor's output. This cookie can be set and cleared from the Settings panel in Query Monitor. This cookie operates using the same mechanism as the authentication cookies in WordPress core, and therefore it contains the user's user_login field in plain text which should be treated as potentially personally identifiable information. The name of the cookie is wp-query_monitor_{hash} where {hash} is an identifier unique to the installation of WordPress.

Query Monitor stores some user preferences in the browser's Local Storage. It stores the ID of the most recently accessed panel and its dimensions and position. This data is stored using the browser's localStorage API, which does not get sent with HTTP requests, and it does not contain any personally identifiable information.

Please note that in a future version of Query Monitor, opt-in features may be introduced which allow a user to choose to persistently store data and/or send data to a third party service. Such features will only ever be opt-in.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
