  • Define the retention period for Analytics data that you collect
  • Delete Analytics data associated with one or more end users

Disable the collection of Analytics data

You can disable the collection of Analytics data on either a temporary or permanent basis as necessary.

Set the retention period for the Analytics data that you collect

In Analytics settings, you can choose to retain user data for a maximum of 14 months or to retain data according to Analytics default data-retention policy (page 2).

Delete end user data stored on the device

The Google Analytics API lets you add controls to your app so that users can delete Analytics data collected for the app from a specific device, and reset the app-instance ID in the process. Learn more about using resetAnalyticsData on Android and iOS.

The API also lets you add controls to your app so that users can determine whether or not any Analytics data is collected from the app on a specific device. Learn more about using setAnalyticsCollectionEnabled on Android and iOS.

Delete end user data stored on Analytics servers

You can use the Google Analytics API to honor requests from users to delete data about them from Analytics servers on a per-app, per-device basis. Learn more about the User Deletion API.
