The Microsoft Store versions of Snipaste do not require network access for core functionality, except for downloading images at users' request.

3.2 Desktop Versions (Windows/Mac/Linux)

Desktop versions access the network only for the following purposes:

  1. User-Initiated Actions: Downloading images at your request (e.g., pinning an image from the internet).
  2. Automatic Updates: Checking for software updates.

4. Telemetry Data

During update checks, desktop versions of Snipaste transmit the following non-personal information for telemetry purposes:

This data helps us improve Snipaste and is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
