You might find when debugging your application that Insights impedes your ability to do so by capturing crash reports, both native and managed, that you may want access to. You may also not want to pollute your applications data in Insights with events from your debug session.

The solution for this is to use Insights debug mode, replacing your Initialize call with the following code will enter debug mode:

using Xamarin;

In Debug mode:

  • Insights will not collect any unhandled crash reports
  • Insights will not pick up native crash reports
  • Insights.Track() or Insights.Identify() calls will be ignored.
