Mozilla also announced that users could delete all telemetry data collected so far. This is done to comply with the new California Consumer Privacy Act. Mozilla has recently received a new update and users can now delete the data.

Telemetry data also includes the operating system you use, computer hardware specifications, browser version, language, and more. Now that Mozilla has given the freedom to delete this data, it makes sense to delete this data.
