I know we chose this string in bug 1235840, but in talking to Elvin, it seems there are concerns that this string is misleading to users because we persist a (random) uuid across reports, so it's not technically anonymous. Elvin requested that we change this string (because we also don't use it in our other products, other than Focus and Firefox for iOS).

For example, Firefox Android uses a much longer string [1] but it doesn't claim anonymity. We should change this to a similar string, but (ideally) shorter.

[1] Shares performance, usage, hardware and customization data about your browser with Mozilla to help us make Firefox better.
This seems like something that Michelle would need to be involved in.
