Welcome to Instabug's Documentation!
Here you'll find a comprehensive technical guide
to help you start working with the Instabug SDK efficiently.

Get Started


This page covers the compliance with GDPR.

At Instabug, we've been hard at work ensuring that all your user data protected while being fully transparent with you.

Now, Instabug is fully compliant with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is effective as of May 25, 2018.

Please refer here for the Data Protection Addendum (DPA).
The updated terms of service can be found here.


Personally Identifiable Information

The personally identifiable information collected by Instabug's SDK by default is name, email, and IP. Any other custom attributes are set through the application code

Delete User API

We've added an API that allows you to delete the data of a specific user on-demand. This API will delete any personally identifiable information, custom attributes, logs, screenshots and any data that we have for this user. This action is irreversible.

Via Email

You can delete a user's data via their email. The API for this is as follows:

curl -XDELETE 'https://api.instabug.com/api/web/public/users/v1'\?application_token\="app_token"\&email\="email"


Alternatively, you can delete a user's data via UUID instead of email using the below cURL:

curl --location --request DELETE 'https://api.instabug.com/api/web/public/users/uuid/v1?application_token=app_token&uuid=uuid' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw '{
    "token" : "SECRET_TOKEN"

Please note that you can get the secret token for your application by reaching out to our support team.

You can retrieve the UUID of an individual user through the SDK itself using the following APIs:

(void)userUUID:(void (^)(NSString * _Nullable uuid))userUUIDCompletionHandler;
//use the uuid

Instabug.getUserUUID { uuid -> 
//use the uuid

Data Retention and Export

You can now customize how long Instabug retains your users' data. This is set by default based on your plan. You can request an export of all the data that we have for your account or for a specific user. Please reach out to us at [email protected]
