JavaScript Building Applications with React and Redux Putting it all Together Adding Redux DevTools

In a production environment, can redux record the users actions?

If so, does that mean that a developer could step through the users sequence of events, using the slider in the redux tools, in order to find out how exactly a bug was raised?

Yes, but not without them providing the information. So, no, it's not a way for a software dev to monitor the actions taken by the end user of our applications. But you can build in reporting systems that provide Redux Dev Tools logs which you as a dev can load and walk step by step through their actions to determine what caused the bug.
