Security & Compliance

Keeping our customers' data safe is our priority


Keeping our customers' data protected at all times is our highest priority. This security overview provides a high-level overview of the security practices put in place to achieve that objective. Have questions or feedback? Feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]


Cloud infrastructure

All of our services run in the cloud. We don’t host or run our own routers, load balancers, DNS servers, or physical servers. Our service is built on Heroku. They provide strong security measures to protect our infrastructure and are compliant with most certifications. You can read more about their practices in the Heroku security policy

DDoS protection

We use Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation services powered by an industry-leading solution.

Data encryption

Encryption in transit

All data sent to or from our infrastructure is encrypted in transit via industry best-practices using Transport Layer Security (TLS). You can see our SSLLabs report here

Encryption at rest

All data stored in our database is encrypted at rest using battled-proofed encryption algorithms. We don't store any password in our database but we rely on 3rd party authentication providers and implement dedicated standards-based SSO solutions for entreprise customers.

Data retention and removal

We retain your usage data for a period of 90 days after last use. All data is then completely removed from the dashboard and server. Every user can request the removal of usage data by contacting support. Read more about our privacy settings at

Business continuity and disaster recovery

We back up all our critical assets and regularly attempt to restore the backup to guarantee a fast recovery in case of disaster. All our backups are encrypted.

Secure development

We develop following security best practices and frameworks (OWASP Top 10, SANS Top 25). We use the following best practices to ensure the highest level of security in our software:

User protection

2-factor authentication

We provide a 2-factor authentication mechanism via some well-known authentication providers (Slack, Google) to protect our users from account takeover attacks.

Account takeover protection

We protect our users against data breaches by monitoring and blocking brute force attacks.

Single sign-on

Single sign-on (SSO) is offered for our enterprise customers.

Suspicious user behavior monitoring

We use Sqreen to monitor suspicious behaviors and react fast in case of account takeovers. It also protects customers against data theft by blocking credential stuffing or brute force attacks.
