If your Horizon administrator has opted to participate in the customer experience improvement program, VMware collects and receives anonymous data on client systems to prioritize hardware and software compatibility. You can configure whether to share information on your client system by enabling or disabling a setting in Horizon Client.

Horizon Client data sharing is enabled by default. You must configure the data sharing setting before you connect to a server. The setting is applied to all servers. You cannot change the Horizon Client data sharing setting after you connect to a server.


  1. Select VMware Horizon Client > Preferences from the menu bar and click General.
  2. To enable or disable data sharing, select or deselect the Allow data sharing check box.
