I asked this question 2 years ago and didn’t get a response so I’ll try again. Items I have purchased on CodeCanyon include Google Tag Manager tracking. How is this allowed?
I have no exact reason but i think it may be at the time of development developers put gtag for testing purpose and then forget to delete it and then they generate project as final product and released on marketplace.
If you found Gtag then you can remove it or replace it
This is definitely not an accident and should be communicated to the buyer explicitly. The same author also has assets linking back to their own personal domains in order for the code to function correctly instead of including every asset within the files. The obvious issue here being that when the author’s site goes down the code I paid for ceases to function. How this passes quality checks is mind boggling.
