We have successfully disabled session capture for over 99% of all accounts affected by the incident.

While a big majority of the sites did not collect any data during the time the session capture was enabled, we estimate that 19% did record session data.

After evaluating the risks involved in the deletion of the collected data we decided to start the work on having the mistakenly captured data removed from the accounts starting June 21st, due to limited team availability during the Hotjar annual company meetup.

Thank you again for your patience!

Our engineers have investigated and identified an incident concerning Session Capture being enabled for all customer sites.

We're working on reverting the change that caused this, and removing any data that shouldn't have been collected.

Thanks for bearing with us, we'll post another update soon!
