None of our tools will send any data back to us, giving you complete control over your information.
But we also know that your browser can be a weak point. Chrome and Firefox have been known to send data back to their servers. We’re always working to find ways to prevent this, and we welcome any contributions or suggestions from our users to improve your privacy when using our tools.
We take pride in our commitment to protecting your privacy and ensuring that you have complete control over your data. To learn more about our privacy practices, please read more.
What does it cost?
Sitespeed.io is freely available as Open Source software, with no hidden costs. However, running an instance of the tool does come with some expenses.
To keep costs low, we recommend using cloud/server hosting services such as Hetzner, and storing data on S3. With one instance, you can run a large number of tests per month, with an estimated cost of around $500 per year.
To get a more detailed understanding of the costs involved, please refer to our cost breakdown information.
