Likely the app needed to check for your registration info, if you're a Pro version user.

I'm a Pro user of the PC version, my Android version is the free version. (Can I upgrade to the Pro version without a Google account?)

If the option to opt-out of Google snooping does only work for the Pro version, you should grey-out or remove this checkbox in the free version. On my phone (Android 5.1), this option currently looks like a placebo (which could possibly violate GDPR, but IANAL).

(It's a real pity that you gave up your former privacy-friendly approach at some time!)

The option for sharing analytics data works as for the Pro as fro the Free versions. Were there any other requests to outside IP addresses except for the very first one after the update?

Yes, there were. One request every few hours.

Hello ik!
(Can I upgrade to the Pro version without a Google account?)
Yes, there is. I use my smartphone with deactivated Google playstore, Google services and so on. I wrote an email to Astonsoft Support, how to pay, and how to activate AEPIM pro, they told me. Do the same!

Thanks! Will double check whether there's any remaining and unaccounted for requests left in the code.
