    Sure! When dealing with Firebase or Google Analytics, there is no native way to instantly delete specific logged events. With Firebase, once an event is logged, it stays in the console for a specified retention period. However, you can stop logging specific events or even clear your entire Analytics data.

    To use Cloud Functions for this purpose, as you heard, you’d be coding a function that can be triggered to delete certain data, but this involves quite a bit of coding and understanding of how Firebase works. This is not really for beginners and requires a good amount of technical knowledge.

    If your concern is privacy or data management, Firebase and Google Analytics have settings and configurations that you can adjust to ensure that you’re only logging what’s necessary. Additionally, they are also compliant with many privacy laws which impose strict rules on data retention and deletion.

    Remember that these are important details which need to be carefully managed. Making mistakes with data management can have severe consequences. If you’re not familiar with coding, it’s recommended to consult with a professional or spend some time learning about Firebase, Google Analytics, and Cloud Functions before attempting to delete logged events manually.
