Since 1.13 update and the changes that were introduced to the RCON connection,
the information about the players is now open to the public, including their playtimes, durations of play and nicknames.
Websites like GameTracker and BattleMetrics now have full access to all of this info, without being provided with at least a permission and \ or a password.
This is a severe privacy violation.
What is the point in setting an RCON password, while websites offer free monitoring services and they have access to all this info without a password?
As a server owner, I cannot provide the minimal privacy support for my community while the information is available to 3rd parties anyway.
