Why is Quicken secretly using BugSplat, a known PUP ?

Quicken is now using Bugsplat, an Unwanted Program that asks for personal information in an anonymous way to "send" to the "developers". If this is an authentic attempt to secure crash information, it's a fail.
Check your \program files (x86)\Quicken folder for BugSplat.dll & BugSplatRc.dll. This is the SOURCE of the unwanted pop-ups asking for personal information.

    Whether or not it's an "unwanted" program is a matter of perspective and personal opinion.  That's why PUP means "Potentially unwanted program."  Per the following thread, Quicken has been using BugSplat for several years:   https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7871107/bug-splat-popup.

    Not sure what you are talking about....
    The Bugsplat crash dialog has never asked me for any "personal info" -
    It just collects the internal error data and sends it to the Quicken folks.
    A quick Google search implied the info is collected IF you have signed up for an actual  Bugsplat account.
