    Welcome to our AndroidForums :).

    How did you send the crash report? Was it simply in response to a pop-up after a crash asking you to send the report (to the developer) or did you somehow pull extra files and send something outside of this?

    Most crash reports will simply send the Java stack trace of the app that crashed to the developer that does not contain any personal/sensitive information from you or your device.

    If you sent other files (like the system log gleaned from a logcat command) outside of this "report" process, then yes they could contain personal information about you (there's all kinds of stuff that each app records in the system log that you probably wouldn't want to share).

    Yeah, you should be fine...I don't think I'd worry unless you had an explicit reason to not trust the developer--they're interested in fixing the app to be better and not mine data from people (and there's no reason to think that the crash report necessarily contains your personal data).

    Cheers!
