In this section we will cover two key aspect of how Bubble works as a platform: security and hosting/scaling.

Security and privacy

Bubble offers a robust set of tools to keep your users data private and secure, but we don't enforce its use. What this means is that as a Bubble developer, you have a responsibility to learn how the different tools work and to plan and structure your app in a way that both complies with the legal requirements of your region and industry, and respects the expectations of your users.

Security and privacy encompasses a broad spectrum that extends beyond mere technical configurations. It also includes strategic planning, effective communication, and conscientious user engagement.
