Anonymize doesn’t remove custom fields that have been added to profile.
The field has been added manually. Below a screenshot from customizer and the anonymized profile. (Normal Finnish locale.)
I guess it’s a good idea to always remove those values. We should assume that they contain some kind of identifying information.
Adding it to my list.
Shouldn’t plugins implement an “on anoymize” for cases like this, maybe they store stuff that needs to go away in plugin store or a custom table.
Also, some custom fields may be private, do we want to anonymize them?
Plugins should handle the
user_anonymized event, if they need to do some cleanup. I don’t plan on removing them automatically.
But removing values of User Fields defined in
admin/customize/user_fields makes sense.
Thanks for reporting this issue.
Will there be a fix that goes through alreazy anonymized accounts and removes values?
No, there are no plans to remove values from already anonymized accounts.
