APPSEE 

This app uses Appsee, a third-party app analytics service. Using Appsee, we may record your touch gestures, scrolling activity and certain in-app interactions in order to track our app performance, stability, usability, and functional bugs and errors.

This means that key strokes are not recorded, personal data fields that may appear on the session screen are masked, and any information appearing on your screen that is outside the context of the app, such as push notifications, phone status bar or OS permission requests, is not captured. We use the Appsee user recordings solely in order to understand and improve our app functionality and to deliver a better experience to our end users.
