Can I turn off the ‘phone home’ mechanism?

Yes you can, you can disable the ‘Joomlatools Updater’ plugin in your site. When disabled you will not be able to use Joomla's one click updater. Our extensions will also no longer establish a connection with our servers.

Please be aware though that in case you disable the phone home mechanism you are still required to inform us about the total amount of installations as per our terms of service so we can upgraded your subscription if you exceed the total amount of installed systems.
