Why do you collect statistics?
Nexmon is mainly intended as a research project that we share with the community so that others can benefit from our tools.

How do I disable the collection of statistics?
If you have privacy concerns, we also offer to opt-out of the statistic collections. To this end, you simply have to create a
DISABLE_STATISTICS file in your Nexmon root directory.
