WordPress plugins and themes are distributed software. Each installation has its own unique environment. Not knowing anything about your users’ environments makes it impossible to predict failures.
With Freemius Insights, you can learn extremely valuable metrics, like the WordPress versions your users have, the PHP versions and more. This data helps make smarter development decisions.
Before you rush into adding a new cool core function that is only supported in 3.7, check how many of your users are using older versions.
Before you add namespaces to your classes, do you know how many of your users still run on PHP 5.2?
Leverage the webhooks mechanism to define actions performed by your plugin/theme users as events that trigger an action.
Shift your marketing to autopilot and concentrate on coding more awesome features!

Your data is safe and sound. We will never-ever, never-ever, share your user emails with any 3rd party.
We crafted special filters to customize the messaging and buttons of the opt-in screen. If it’s not enough, you can completely edit the PHP template file in the SDK. Make sure you keep it clear about what information is being captured and that it’s sent to Freemius. Otherwise, it won’t be compliant with the WordPress.org guidelines.
