-If you might publicize the logs and are worried about exposing personally identifiable information, you can set an option ("anonymizelogs\ =\ on") to suppress a few of these datums from ever getting into the logs.  Note though that doing so makes the logs significantly less useful for several purposes. Decide what you want (or what's legally required); there's no one "right" answer worldwide. Even consider flipping the option back and forth for different purposes: 'off' during troubleshooting and 'on' during production. +If you might publicize the logs and are worried about exposing personally identifiable information, you can set an option ("anonymizelogs\ =\ on") to suppress a few of these datums from ever getting into the logs in the first place.  Note though that doing so makes the logs significantly less useful for several purposes (including troubleshooting).
