The first user has had no identifying information pushed to their profile in PostHog. That is why a string appears.

The second user has had their email address passed to PostHog.

User history

Clicking on an individual user brings up their entire event history:

You can go even deeper by inspecting each event individually. Click on the event to bring up the event properties. This shows you the following information:

Deleting User Data

You can also delete data on a user, this can be done if you have created data by yourself by testing or if a user asks you to do so.

When in the user history you can select 'Delete all data on this person' this will delete all information on that user permanently.
