If a Horizon administrator has opted to participate in the VMware Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP), VMware collects and receives anonymous data from client systems through Connection Server. You can configure whether to share this client data with Connection Server.

For information about configuring Horizon to join the CEIP, see the VMware Horizon Console Administration document.

Data sharing is enabled by default in HTML Access. You cannot change the data sharing setting after you connect to a server.

A Horizon administrator can disable data sharing in HTML Access for all users and prevent users from changing the data sharing setting in HTML Access. For more information, see Disabling Data Sharing for all HTML Access Users.


  1. Click Settings (gear icon) on the VMware Horizon Web Portal page.
  2. Toggle the Allow data sharing option to on or off.
