Phone Home

QRadar Assistant app V 1.1.5 and later include a new Phone Home feature, which anonymously shares data with the X-Force Exchange to monitor QRadar and detect issues early.

Why Should I Opt in to the Phone Home Feature?

Opting in allows QRadar to proactively detect issues in QRadar before they affect your assets. It also helps how you use QRadar, to more effectively develop product features and services in those areas.

How do I Opt In?

After you update the QRadar Assistant app, a window will prompt you to agree or disagree to using the Phone Home feature. Select Agree to start using the feature.

If you want to opt in at a later time, select to the Help tab on the User Settings window, and select Opt In.

How do I Opt Out?

If you select Disagree, you are not prompted again until you update the app again. If you want to opt in later, click the Help tab on the User Settings window, and select Opt Out.
